Why? Why?
I don't understand this book! It's a big confusion about indian people.

My indigenous voices shelf is really growing. It‘s about to need a second 11 inch cube. I‘m a bit late to the There There game, but I think I‘m going to enjoy it all the same.

CBee I just bought There There too! You‘re not the only one who‘s late to that game 😊 2y

GingerAntics @CBee my people are really over here on Litsy. I‘m such a slacker on other platforms since finding Litsy. 2y
CBee @GingerAntics other platforms? What such nonsense is that? 😂😂😂 Litsy is my jam. Pretty much the only one now and I am SO much happier. 2y
GingerAntics @CBee right? We can disagree on things and still be civil (for the most part) and still be friends. I have IG because apparently potential employers check social media and not having any looks bad. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2y
CBee @GingerAntics absolutely!! I have IG and Facebook but never check either 🤷‍♀️ 2y

Native American author Sherman Alexie writes about the tragic destiny of his mother and the hard life of his parents on the Spokane Indian rez in Washington. Everybody should read Alexie, #TommyOrange and #LouiseErdrich.

It's not a bad book for what it is, but this should never have made the #Booker longlist. The world is going nuts and there are tons of books out there telling relevant stories about our times, with urgent narrative voices and interesting aesthetic concepts - and the Booker judges nominate escapist entertainment with kitsch elements instead of #TimWinton or #TommyOrange. Very upsetting. #indiebuddyreads #manbooker2018 #mbp2018 #finestfiction

arubabookwoman I find that every year there‘s a book or two on the long list that raises this question. 5y
MeikeReads @arubabookwoman You're right!! I'm just so upset that they ignored literature from three continents and now feel all progressive and edgy for adding this! :-( 5y
Redwritinghood Oh no - we‘re not off to a good start. I hope the others are better. 5y

BarbaraBB Oh no - not again... each year there are some books that make me think WTF are they doing on the longlist... 5y
MeikeReads @Redwritinghood At least we have Kushner, Mad and Furious City and Powers! But still... 5y
MeikeReads @BarbaraBB Absolutely, but this is a particularly absurd case, unfortunately! 5y

This. Book. Wow. Tommy Orange crafted a compelling group of characters whose lives intersect in ways both large and small. I was entranced, both by moments of growth and joy and by the feeling that the narrative was heading in a direction that could not be reversed. Lovely and haunting and thought provoking.
