Overview

There There: A Novel by Tommy Orange: Conversation Starters





There There is the New York Times bestselling book of author Tommy Orange. This groundbraking book poses the question, "What does it really mean to be an Indian? A native American? American Indian?" There There follows a unique case of tennagers and elders who ask this question in light of the complexity of the modern world. Orange's characters live in the urban Oakland, California. This novel explored the many different waya of being an Indian. More importantly, ways of feeling like an Indian. Their detachment from tradition, their fractured families and the hustle and bustle of life in Oakland, make their identity as Indians even more elusive.

American War author Omar El Akkad says that There There is "about what it means to inhabit a land both yours and stolen from you, to simultaneously contend with the weight of belonging and unbelonging." Entertainment Weekly hails this novel "the year's most galvanizing debut novel."
