Journal of Mennonite Studies
A literary critique is presented wherein the author examines the novel “A Complicated Kindness,” by Miriam Toew as a restorying of the Russian Mennonite diaspora. The prominence of the diaspora in Canadian Mennonite discourse is referenced, and the personal narrative approach used in Toew’s novel is discussed as a method of connecting readers to the Mennonite experience.
