Drew Hayden Taylor is one of Canada's leading Native playwrights and humorists. He was born on the Curve Lake First Nation, near Peterborough, Ontario. Since 1982 he has lived in Toronto. The product of an Ojibway mother and a white father whom he has never known, he addresses vexed issues of identity, and the many facets of the relation between Native people and whites, with sharp insight and a frequently unsettling sense of humour. He has written for radio, television and, especially, the stage, has directed videos, and has published short stories and four collections of journalistic writings under the running title, "Funny, You Don't Look Like One". The editor, Robert Nunn, and the other contributors examine the dramatic and non-dramatic writings of Drew Hayden Taylor, from aboriginal and non-aboriginal perspectives. Essays by Birgit Dawes, Robert Nunn, Jonathan R. Dewar, Kristina Fagan, Rob Appleford, Ric Knowles and Monique Mojica. Robert Nunn taught dramatic literature and theatre history at Brock University, St. Catharines, Ontario, until his retirement. He has published numerous articles on Canadian drama and playwrights.
