Staff Reviews


Gertrude Stein once dismissed Oakland, CA, saying, “There is no there, there.”  After reading this book, I disagree! During the climax of a book that proves that the term "Native American" isn't so easily defined, characters overlap at the Big Oakland Powwow - some intentionally, and others by chance. There There is intended to make you think, and I felt pain, joy, heartache, and much more as I read this powerful story.

There There is the kind of book that grabs you from the start and doesn’t let go, even after you’ve turned the last page. It is a work of fiction, but every word of it feels true. Tommy Orange writes with a palpable anger and pain, telling the history of a cultural trauma handed down through generations in the blood and bones and stories of individual lives. He also writes with incredible heart and humor, infusing his characters with a tangible humanity and moments of joy even as they are headed toward tragedy. There There has claimed a permanent spot in my heart despite having broken it, or maybe because it did. I think this may be the best book I’ve ever read.”
