Staff Reviews


There There weaves the stories of twelve urban Native Americans into a tapestry of addiction, recovery, violence, and the multi-generational struggle to piece together an identity torn apart by the atrocities committed by the nation in which they reside. Orange does not ask the reader's empathy, but each character's struggles are painted with such clarity that the pain makes it both difficult to continue and impossible to not. Step into these shoes and accept that you will be forever changed.

There There is the kind of book that grabs you from the start and doesn’t let go, even after you’ve turned the last page. It is a work of fiction, but every word of it feels true. Tommy Orange writes with a palpable anger and pain, telling the history of a cultural trauma handed down through generations in the blood and bones and stories of individual lives. He also writes with incredible heart and humor, infusing his characters with a tangible humanity and moments of joy even as they are headed toward tragedy. There There has claimed a permanent spot in my heart despite having broken it, or maybe because it did. I think this may be the best book I’ve ever read.”
