BOOK REVIEW: There There by Tommy Orange
Among them is Jacquie Red Feather, newly sober and trying to make it
back to the family she left behind. Dene Oxendene, pulling his life
together after his uncle’s death and working at the powwow to honor his
memory. Fourteen-year-old Orvil, coming to perform traditional dance for
the very first time. Together, this chorus of voices tells of the plight
of the urban Native American—grappling with a complex and painful
history, with an inheritance of beauty and spirituality, with communion
and sacrifice and heroism.
Hailed as an instant classic, There There is at once poignant and unflinching, utterly contemporary and truly unforgettable.
