There There



There There by Tommy Orange has been everywhere this summer. The story traces the origins of multiple Native people preparing to attend a huge powwow in Oakland. Each has their own tragedy and many of the stories are intertwined. As the book progresses to its climax, each person’s chapter is shorter and shorter, leading to the sense of urgency that drives you to the end. I really enjoyed this book, but there were a few too many characters and I sometimes lost track of who was who. Otherwise, it was really enjoyable and an interesting perspective on a group that isn’t talked about often enough in America.
