Here is a voice we have never heard—a voice full of poetry and rage, exploding onto the page with urgency and force. Tommy Orange has written a stunning novel that grapples with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and profound spirituality, and with a plague of addiction, abuse, and suicide. This is the book that everyone is talking about right now, and it's destined to be a classic.

Professional reviews

"An ensemble cast is an effective vehicle for a novel about contemporary Native Americans living in Oakland, California. The subplots and changing points of view show their relationships to each other, the violence that is part of their daily lives in the city, and their eventual meeting at the first Oakland Powwow. Chapter headings that announce a shift in point of view become particularly helpful as more characters are introduced. Listeners will enjoy the individual stories as they unfold and slowly intertwine. The emotions that Alma Cuervo and Kyla Garcia bring to the characters of Jacquie Red Feather and her sister, Opal, are particularly memorable. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
