Kim Shuck’s Bio

Kim Shuck is a writer, weaver, bead artist and walker on the crests of hills. Her artwork has shown on four continents and her poetry has been published on three. Shuck’s first juried publication was in the En’owken Journal out of Canada. Her first solo book of poetry, Smuggling Cherokee, was published by Greenfield Review Press and won the Diane Decorah award from the Native Writers’ Circle of the Americas. She lives in San Francisco with grown children, rescue cats and a disagreeable parrot called Bond. Rumors of resident ghosts, demi-gods or well kept secrets cannot be verified at this time.

About the Book Rabbit Stories

Subatomic particles. String. Knots. The water in London, San Francisco, Tar Creek. A coy Spider. The Dance of DNA. Chestnut Man’s kiss. Songs made of strawberry soda. These are glimpses of the complex world in which a Tsalagi girl/woman lives. Named “Rabbit Food” after a wild rose, the girl is accompanied through life by irreverent guardian and teacher Rabbit, “a creature of trick and pleasure.” Kim Shuck’s collection is tenderly constructed, finely woven in and out of Rabbit Food’s lifetime as girl, young woman, new mother, and mature artist. Rabbit Stories winds through waters layered with dream and memory, loops back around time with a wise/cracking humor. I couldn’t put these stories down. They’re singing in me now; it feels as if the DNA in my cells has been transformed by, as Rabbit would say, “a joy in craft and artifact.” Brava! —Deborah A. Miranda, author of Bad Indians: A Tribal Memoir.
