August 22, 2019 There There by Tommy Orange

Presented by Dorothy C.

Here's the thing about There There, the debut novel by Native American author Tommy Orange: Even if the rest of its story were just so-so — and it's much more than that — the novel's prologue would make this book worth reading….….There There is pithy and pointed. With a literary authority rare in a debut novel, it places Native American voices front and center before readers' eyes. (From NPR Review by Maureen Corrigan)
