Product Description

Born into a reclusive Hutterite community near Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, Mary Ann Kirkby was shielded from main-stream culture and its expectations. Her childhood was filled with friendship, adventure, delicious food and a deep sense of belonging. Yet under the surface of this idyllic setting, disagreements and strife forced Kirkby's parents to do the unthinkable. They left the Hutterite colony with their seven children to start a new life.

In I Am Hutterite Mary Ann Kirkby shares what it was like for her as a child to leave everything she knew. And how, desperate for acceptance she denied her heritage in order to fit in with her peers. She kept her past secret for years, hoping to avoid the prejudice associated with her culture. Kirkby's journey comes full circle as an adult learning to accept and claim both the good and bad of her painful and fascinating past.

Publisher's Description

ôYour mother and father are running away," said a voice piercing the warm air. I froze and turned toward home. To a Hutterite, nothing is more shameful than that word, running away, Weglaufen...ö

In 1969, Ann-MarieÆs parents did the unthinkable. They left a Hutterite colony in Canada with seven children, and little else, to start a new life. Overnight, the family was thrust into a society they did not understand and which knew little of their unique culture. The transition was overwhelming. Desperate to be accepted, ten-year-old Ann-Marie was forced to deny her heritage in order to fit in with her peers. I Am Hutterite chronicles her quest to reinvent herself as she comes to terms with the painful circumstances that led her family to leave community life. Rich with memorable characters and vivid descriptions, this ground-breaking narrative shines a light on intolerance, illuminating the simple truth that beneath every human exterior beats a heart longing for understanding and acceptance.

ôA superb memoir . . . this has the makings of a prairie classic.ö

--AWARD JURY, SASK BOOK AWARDS

ôHonest, strong, clear, direct, it opens the door on what has been for so many of us a completely closed world.ö

--WINNIPEG FREE PRESS

Author Bio

Mary-Ann Kirkby spent her childhood in a Hutterite colony in Canada. Without warning her parents uprooted their 7 children to begin a new life in the outside world. Mary-Ann's difficult transition into popular culture led her to an award-winning career in television as a gifted storyteller.

Publisher's Weekly

This sweeping prairie memoir, self-published in Canada in 2007, rapidly garnered both commercial and literary applause. Recounting the author's journey from a Hutterite girlhood to an adolescence of desperate striving to catch up with fashions of the time, the book manages to pack information about Hutterite life into a coming-of-age narrative without slowing it down. Kirkby's family moved away from their Manitoba colony when she was 10 years old, after what she calls a “near idyllic childhood” in the cradle of a communal society. Once a reader commits the many characters and their relationships to each other to memory, the book becomes as riveting and well-paced as a novel. Kirkby captures the complex cadences of Hutterite life—the bawdy humor and knack for storytelling that stands beside austere ritual, the poverty of personal possession and freedom that exists beside the security of community life—with pitch-perfect writing. She also manages to avoid either vilifying or romanticizing a culture that has been subjected to both. Readers will find themselves hoping that Kirkby follows the popular trend in memoir writing: producing a sequel. (May)Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
