What the Crow Said Author:Robert Kroetsch Bawdy commic novel is Kroetsch's best. Featuring one of the sexiest beastly seductions since Leda met the swan. Fabulous. It is a funny, lusty fable, a mixture of tall tale and fairy tale. It has the heroic quality of the stories one's grandfather used to tell, of terrible blizzards and great feats of endurance.
