This is Treuer s first book He s gone on to write among other things a truly visionary contemporary novel The Translation of Dr Apelles and has made a name for himself as trying hard to redefine the idea of Native American writing and its place in the worldHis first novel is short or unfocused on plot but he was clearly concerned with the craft It still has a ways to go but this is definitely a worthwhile read Very descriptive Successful in conveying the particularities of placeThis passage is a particular gemIt was dark and she lay against the wall in a pile of uilts made from rotting panels of fabric that I had cut from the pants legs of drunken loggers as they lay passed out along the boarded walls of the town barThere are many many descriptions like this one honest unromanticized but thickly layered rich well grounded descriptions that do everything they can to convey the living conditions on the reservation not only of the Natives but of the white folk who live there as well The destitute conditions of the Natives are artfully mixed in with the similarly destitute conditions of the surrounding poor white farmers or the white trash who operate the few businesses on the rez This conflation is the book s strength it is honest about the poverty of all and deals with the Native plight racism etc by subtle measures within that encompassing destitution The book is never about Indians It strives from the outset to be about everyone
