Native people and their stories are rarely (if ever) given the attention they deserve in American literature. In Orange's first novel, he manages not only to give Native peoples lives and stories their due attention but he also manages to create a narrative that rocks readers to their cores. If I were to compare this to anything I'd say it reminds me of HBO's hit The WireThere There is made up of vignettes that give texture to each character while also driving its larger plot. At the end of it all there's really only one thing left to do - put on the blues.
