memory. Opal Viola Victoria Bear Shield has come to watch her nephew Orvil,
who has taught himself traditional Indian dance through YouTube videos and

as it is fierce, funny, suspenseful, thoroughly modern, and impossible to
put down. 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.
