Jonathan Freedman

Question
I recommend the book highly on many dimensions. Tommy Orange is a powerful Native American novelist in modernist literary tradition. He captures the inner voices of his characters.

I have one question: Who is Manny and what role did he play in the chain of events leading to Octavio becoming a drug dealer and plant the robbery that triggered the shootings?
Jenna

Haunting
Heartbreaking and so important to witness the threads of history.
Jennifer Shaw

Love & Hate
This book is real and gritty and brings to light the issues facing modern day Native Americans. I loved the short story format. The writing was straightforward and the author did a good job carrying the theme through all the different characters.

Th author purposely leaves a lot of story lines unresolved. I anticipate that this book will spark a great discussion at your book club meetings.
