Win a Copy of "There There" by Tommy Orange
About "There There: a Novel"
"There There" dips into the lives of various Native Americans living in Oakland, CA. It reads like a collection of very interconnected short stories about each of these characters. Tenses change (first person, third person, and even second person), we step back in time for key events, and everything leads inexorably to everyone converging at the Big Oakland Powwow.
Pick up this excellent debut if you are in the mood for a sprawling cast of characters, great writing, and some unforgettable stories.
