Jonny Appleseed
Jonny Appleseed | Joshua Whitehead
"You're gonna need a rock and a whole lotta medicine" is a mantra that Jonny Appleseed, a young Two-Spirit/Indigiqueer, repeats to himself in this vivid and utterly compelling novel. Off the reserve and trying to find ways to live and love in the big city, Jonny becomes a cybersex worker who fetishizes himself in order to make a living. Self-ordained as an NDN glitter princess, Jonny has one week before he must return to the "rez," and his former life, to attend the funeral of his stepfather. The next seven days are like a fevered dream: stories of love, trauma, sex, kinship, ambition, and the heartbreaking recollection of his beloved kokum (grandmother). Jonny's world is a series of breakages, appendages, and linkages--and as he goes through the motions of preparing to return home, he learns how to put together the pieces of his life. Jonny Appleseed is a unique, shattering vision of Indigenous life, full of grit, glitter, and dreams.

It was not in chronological order, and it was quite sexually graphic at times. The author narrated the audio but he has a monotone voice. Turns out there might have been more of a plot than I thought, so maybe I did miss more than I thought. For some reason, I had it in my head that indigenous 2-spirit people were more accepted in indigenous cultures than gay people in white cultures, but (at least in this book) that doesn‘t appear to be the case

A good but very explicit listen. It went further than I‘m generally comfortable with but the writing was excellent and the story had a beautiful nuance to it.

janeycanuck @Suzze Aside from the overly explicit bits, it was very good. I really enjoyed the episode from the Storykeeper‘s podcast on it, as well. Good companion - they made me feel much better about being uncomfortable with the explicit parts. 5mo

I found that the book jumped around in time a lot and it was hard.to keep track. Jonny's struggling with his identity and how sex fits into that - the acts of sex in this book are about his raw emotions and trying to find his way - I felt like I was invading his private, innermost thoughts- which left me with a "yuck" feeling. This book is NOT mindless, steamy sex where you are just along for the ride.
Loved his Kokum and their bond.

Igor loves new book scent too 😹.

Jonny is a preteen to early 20‘s indigiqueer two spirit exploring his sexuality and growing up on the Rez in Canada. His family is challenged with alcoholism and life isn‘t always easy. But Jonny‘s grandmother is a loving supporter and advocate for him, and thier relationship was touching.

Y‘all this book is brimming with sex, so if that would bother you maybe steer away.

One of a kind, informative, 👍👍.

I've seen Whitehead's writing classified as "indigiqueer" which is such a great descriptor. This book is more of a look into the life of a young queer / Two-Spirit Indigenous guy named Jonny Appleseed, focusing on the important women in his life, than a plot-heavy novel. Jonny contemplates the cyber sex work he does in the city and his experiences growing up with his mom and kokum (grandmother) on the "rez." A really compelling read.

Following a young 2Spirit character navigating life inside and outside his home. Very physical book, in both the sexual encounters that come up a lot, but also the amount of physical interaction with his family, which is written in a really poetic way, entwining stories and histories with physical touch.

Love feels like the wrong word to describe what I felt about this book. It's raw, emotional, eye-opening, and something I will never forget.

This book doesn't necessarily have a plot, it feels more like you just stepped into Jonny's life and you experience his world with him as he does what he needs to survive.

I feel this is an important read that will help others see things from the viewpoint of a Two-Spirit indigenous person. 💚

This is a good one. A First Nations gay man who is a sex worker, but his friends and family don‘t know that he is. He tells his history while also telling the story of earning enough money to get back to the reservation for his stepdad‘s funeral.
Well written and narrated by the author. Short and worth it.

There is not much plot here, but I enjoyed the rawness of the writing and the depth of the character enough that the lack of plot wasn‘t a big issue for me. It is a story about a queer, indigenous youth trying to find a way through the poverty, racism, and homophobia in his life. Loved the writing and the author did a great job reading this. I also loved the way the character showed his deep respect and fondness for the women in his life. 4⭐️

This books has a unique, special feeling about it, and it makes me want to find other books like it!

If you aren‘t scared off by the graphic sexual content (it‘s there, but it fits the story), you will be swept away by Jonny and the story of their life, their family and their way of being in the world. Jonny is two spirited, indigenous, and someone I enjoyed getting to know!

I must admit that I wasn‘t sure this book would be for me, but it was a Canada Reads finalist (and ultimate winner) this year so I decided to give it a try. The novel is short on plot and some scenes were too graphic for my reading tastes, but Jonny won me over anyway. I loved his relationship with his kokum, as well as the one he had with Tias. I‘m not a big fan of first person narratives, but it worked well here. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

#ReadCanada Manitoba ✅

KVanRead Nice review! I loved his Kokum. 1y
Prairiegirl_reading I gave up for the reasons you were unsure. I just wasn‘t connecting but I didn‘t get very far. He had only referred to his Kokum. Plus it was on libby and I‘m more apt to bail if I‘m not into something if someone might be waiting for it. 😕 1y
MsMelissa @Prairiegirl_reading Honestly, had I picked this up at another time there is a good chance I would have bailed on it. I was in the right mood for it last weekend so it ended up working for me overall. But this book won‘t work for everyone and that‘s okay. 1y

This book is damn gorgeous. Normally this much graphic sex would turn me off, but the beauty of the prose and of the author‘s narration turned this into a book I loved!

Jonny is a two-spirit, indigenous, queer sex worker in Winnipeg. As they gather money to return to The Res for their stepfather‘s funeral, they reflect on their first love, poverty, being a professional fetish, and their beloved mother and grandmother. ⬇️ #audiobook

TheKidUpstairs I don't usually like that much sex in my books either, but I thought this handled it so well. Frank and honest, but never exploitative or gratuitous. This one just won Canada Reads (annual televised book debate to decide one book that all Canadians should read), first time an Indigenous-authored book has won (let alone 2-spirit Indigiqueer), championed by an LGBTQ Indigenous actress. There was a really beautiful moment between them. 1y

MsMelissa I‘m not really sure this book will be for me, but I‘m willing to give it a try since it‘s a Canada Reads book. I find that a lot of books published by smaller Canadian publishers receive funding from federal and/or provincial arts councils, at least that‘s my impression judging from how often the Canada Council for the Arts and their provincial counterparts are listed in the acknowledgment section of Canadian books. 1y
Megabooks @MsMelissa I didn‘t think it was for me either, but I definitely appreciate what Joshua did. I think it‘s fantastic that Canada has such strong support of several art mediums - including literature. 1y
Megabooks @TheKidUpstairs he really did. It was Jonny‘s profession, and except with the man he loved, it was handled in a very transactional way. I think that put sex work out there as frankly as if he were an attorney. And can I say that it is amazing that Canadians debate books on television. I have just massive respect for the Canadian government‘s & the Canadian people‘s interest in the arts. (Obviously not every person but enough to have a wide debate) 1y
Crazeedi I dont think I could do this one 1y
Megabooks @TheKidUpstairs I just wish we‘d stop having stupid debates over morals and art and people living their honest lives down here in the states. I think respect and support of all things in this book (indigenous, queer, sex work, being non-binary) shouldn‘t be up for debate - especially by straight cis white men. 1y
Megabooks @Crazeedi it‘s not for everyone, but I really respect what the author did and how he did it. I was surprised I liked it as much as I did, but I definitely read it more slowly than most books I read. 1y
Megabooks @Crazeedi let me revise, I think it‘s a fantastic book that makes a lot of important points, but I also understand that not everyone is comfortable with graphic sex. I know 9 times out of 10, it makes me super uncomfortable, which is why I don‘t read erotic romance, but I felt it served this narrative. (edited) 1y

I‘m so excited for the Canada Reads debate to start on Monday! All of these books were exceptional; Hench was my favourite by far, but I want Jonny Appleseed to win. I read TMB as an ARC and enjoyed it, but not everything worked for me. TTMAF was beautiful but I got lost in some of the science. JA was a devastating character study, and BHPB was an intense story that spans multigenerational grief. I highly recommend all of them.

This is a novel-as-character-study, rather than a plot driven tale. It's a hard thing to pull off, but Whitehead succeeds with love and vulnerability. Open your heart, bear witness, and (too often) ache for Jonny, a two-spirited NDN princess learning how to come home again. Raw and frank in its depictions of sex, sexuality, and sex work, this may not be one for everyone, but it is so worthy of its spot in the #CanadaReads panel.

The first few chapters were so raw, ugly and graphic. But somewhere I fell in love with Jonny, a two-spirit princess, who felt forced to leave the rez, in order to survive. Working as a sex worker in Winnipeg, trying to make enough money to go home for his sorta stepfathers funeral, while sharing the stories of his home and the people who live there. The writing is amazing. The storytelling is fantastic. This is my winning pick.

JONNY APPLESEED‘s opening chapters convinced me it was the type of litfic that‘s Good For You instead of the kind I connect with. This impression faded somewhat as the book built steam, but while I came to see this as a layered, heartfelt, and important narrative, I never did click with it the way I wanted to. It‘s worth reading and I think it deserves its spot in Canada Reads, but it won‘t be my top pick. #canadareads2021

I really liked this. Pretty grim and graphic at times, but there is also much beauty here and some very fine writing. As he states in the note at the end, Whitehead places Two Spirit persons and Indigenous women at the center of the narrative and it‘s these characters, their relationships, and his exploration of home and place that I found most compelling.

I stumbled upon this book while looking for an #ownvoices book written by an indigenous or native author. I loved reading from the pov of a queer NDN. The writing is expressive and alive, and his tone authentic. But, I found the style to be a bit confusing. The constant flipping of time left me a bit disoriented. I did learn a lot about life on the reservation and being an Indigiqueer, which I found very valuable.
