So good. There were a lot of characters to keep track with and I didn’t always succeed, but the story is powerfully beautiful and sad. The pacing of the novel is excellent, starts at a normal pace but by the end I tore through it. Some of the opening quotes were devastating. “In the dark times Will there also be singing? Yes, there will be singing. About the dark times” Bertold Brecht and “what strange phenomena we find in a great city, all we need do is still about with our eyes open. Life swarms with innocent monsters” Charles Baudelaire. Quite a remarkable book.

Beautiful. Devastating. ( )

This book presents an assortment of Native American characters from different backgrounds with one thing in common - they don’t live on a reservation. They are urban, and trying to figure out what exactly that means to them. What does it mean to be Native if you live surrounded by white people and white culture and colonialism? Are you Native because of your blood? How much? How do you know if you feel native enough?

The characters are all heading toward a big event - an urban powwow in Oakland, California. Some of them are helping to organize it, others are dancing or playing instruments or meeting family they barely know or just attending. But life under colonialism takes a toll, and things don’t end well.

I really enjoyed the characters here, and I wish I had gotten to know more about them. Some of the teenage/young adult boys blended together in a way that was hard to follow, but that might have been on purpose. Some of the connections between characters seemed a little far fetched, but connection is a theme of the book so it worked. The writing style is very stream-of-consciousness, which is very much not my thing, but if you like it this is an incredible example. I really did not care for the ending, but it did feel appropriate to the story. Certainly a book I appreciate having read, but I won’t be reading it again. ( )

The first pages of this debut novel are a sociological prologue, a red hot scythe through the myths of this country’s relationship with Native Americans. They show Orange to be a tremendously gifted writer and are my favorite part of this book. The fictional story that follows was less compelling for me but I’ll be quite interested in following Orange’s future development. ( )

When I started this book, I thought that instead of a novel, it was a series of short stories that might have some link that would be revealed as I got deeper into it. It took a few chapters to see that the characters’ stories were related in ways — by blood or circumstance — that came more into focus, all moving toward one event — The Big Oakland Powwow — that would irrevocably change many lives. From the arresting prologue to the violent and abrupt (to me) end, Tommy Orange engaged me with his crisp writing, exposing some problems facing Native Americans, in this case, Urban Indians, as he calls them.

Characters here do not notice connections that might offer meaning even though they tell endless details. For those of us who may want literature to confirm human journeys, (or even reject them), this is boring stuff.
 
There There signals an exciting new era for Native American fiction. Orange lends a critical voice that at once denudes the reality of cultural genocide while evoking a glimmer of encouragement.
 
The network of characters in There There proves dizzying, but the multivocal nature of the book is a purposeful, intelligent strategy. It offers a glimpse of an interconnected life, a world in which small stones don’t just sink to the bottom of the sea but change tides.

This is a trim and powerful book, a careful exploration of identity and meaning in a world that makes it hard to define either.
afegit per ScattershotSteph | editaVox, Constance Grady (Jul 2, 2018)
 
The idea of unsettlement and ambiguity, of being caught between two worlds, of living a life that is disfigured by loss and the memory of loss, but also by confusion, distraction and unease, impels some of the characters, and allows the sound of the brain on fire to become dense with dissonance. Orange’s characters are, however, also nourished by the ordinary possibilities of the present, by common desires and feelings. This mixture gives their experience, when it is put under pressure, depth and a sort of richness.
afegit per ScattershotSteph | editaThe New York Times Book Review, Colm Toibin (Web de pagament) (Jun 19, 2018)

Just like the Indian Head test pattern was broadcast to sleeping Americans as we set sail from our living rooms, over the ocean blue-green glowing airwaves, to the shores, the screens of the New World.
Plenty of us are urban now. If not because we live in cities, then because we live on the internet. Inside the high-rise of multiple browser windows. They used to call us sidewalk Indians. Called us citified, superficial, inauthentic, cultureless refugees, apples. An apple is red on the outside and white on the inside. But what we are is what our ancestors did. How they survived. We are the memories we don’t remember, which live in us, which we feel, which make us sing and dance and pray the way we do, feelings from memories that flare and bloom unexpectedly in our lives like blood through a blanket from a wound made by a bullet fired by a man shooting us in the back for our hair, for our heads, for a bounty, or just to get rid of us.
They took everything and ground it down to dust as fine as gunpowder, they fired their guns into the air in victory and the strays flew out into the nothingness of histories written wrong and meant to be forgotten. Stray bullets and consequences are landing on our unsuspecting bodies even now.
...we know the smell of gas and freshly wet concrete and burned rubber better than we do the smell of cedar or sage or even fry bread—which isn’t traditional, like reservations aren’t traditional, but nothing is original, everything comes from something that came before, which was once nothing. Everything is new and doomed. We ride buses, trains, and cars across, over, and under concrete plains. Being Indian has never been about returning to the land. The land is everywhere or nowhere.
This there there. He hadn’t read Gertrude Stein beyond the quote. But for Native people in this country, all over the Americas, it’s been developed over, buried ancestral land, glass and concrete and wire and steel, unreturnable covered memory. There is no there there.
