內容簡介

「在這本動人的故事中,作者不僅寫出美國原住民生活中的挑戰和複雜,也寫出美國自身的問題。」柯克斯評論 

 

賈基最近剛戒毒,試著要重回因為羞愧而疏遠的家庭;狄恩在叔叔過世後,重拾生活,來到奧克蘭的印第安聚會中工作,以紀念叔叔;奧沃從Youtube的影片上學會了印地安的傳統舞蹈,準備在奧克蘭的集會中第一次在大眾面前跳舞,而他的叔叔則是趕到集會來欣賞姪子的第一場表演…

十二有印地安血統的人為了不同的原因來到奧克蘭參加印地安集會,從這些跨世代的故事中,我們將看到暴力和修復、記憶和認同、在印地安的歷史中交織的美和失落。

作者Tommy Orange在美國東部出生長大,本身就有印地安血統,開始寫作後就很清楚知道自己必須寫下這個鮮少被談及的族群的故事,在這本出道作中,他寫出了一個美國鮮為人知的一面,也將印地安的文化帶到讀者眼前,其珍貴的價值讓本書出版後即受到各界媒體重視。


Fierce, angry, funny, heartbreaking—Tommy Orange’s first novel is a wondrous and shattering portrait of an America few of us have ever seen, and it introduces a brilliant new author at the start of a major career.
          There There is a relentlessly paced multigenerational story about violence and recovery, memory and identity, and the beauty and despair woven into the history of a nation and its people. It tells the story of twelve characters, each of whom have private reasons for traveling to the Big Oakland Powwow. Jacquie Red Feather is newly sober and trying to make it back to the family she left behind in shame. Dene Oxendene is pulling his life back together after his uncle’s death and has come to work at the powwow to honor his uncle’s memory. Opal Viola Victoria Bear Shield has come to watch her nephew Orvil, who has taught himself traditional Indian dance through YouTube videos and has come to the powwow to dance in public for the very first time. There will be glorious communion, and a spectacle of sacred tradition and pageantry. And there will be sacrifice, and heroism, and unspeakable loss.
         Here is a voice we have never heard—a voice full of poetry and rage, exploding onto the page with stunning urgency and force. Tommy Orange writes of the plight of the urban Native American, the Native American in the city, in 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. An unforgettable debut, destined to become required reading in schools and universities across the country.
