Lecker, Robert Kroetsch : An Annotated Bibliography A4. "In Gone Indian, the third novel of his acclaimed 'Out West' trilogy, Robert Kroetsch recounts the hilarious story of Jeremy Sadness - professional graduate student at a New York State university - who, overcome by his curious academic and sexual inadequacies, lights out for the wilds of the Canadian northwest. Having inadvertantly exchanged suitcases - and identities - with one Roger Dorck, comatose victim of a snowmobiling accident, Sadeness becomes hopelessly embroiled in the comic Bacchanalia of the Notikeewin winter festival, during which he is arrested by 'redcoats' and compelled to judge a beauty contest in which all of the contestants look exactly alike. WithGone Indian, Kroetsch satirizes the conventions behind every traditional ' quest-novel' and cofirms his reputation as one of Canada's finest comtemporary novelists." - r.cover. Very good.
