This is a lushly rendered and at times heart-breaking novel set in the deep marshlands of Noth Carolina in the 60's. Kya Clark is abandoned by her parents and siblings and depends on the land, her self-reliance and a few friends to help her navigate childhood to adulthood. Along the way there is a murder that she is implicated in and she also becomes a published author. A very good read.

A farcical romp through elite privilege gone awry, and that doesn't fail to entertain. Patrick deWitt is a master at depicting the scene behind the scene, the one we all want to see. Frances Price is a gorgeous NY socialite, who may or may not be the killer of her late husband Franklin, the man who now embodies small Frank, the house cat. Malcolm is the eccentric sulking progeny who at times turns admonishes and sustains Frances. When inheritance money runs dry, the trio flees to Paris on a last run adventure.

"...you have to know we should never not tell our stories...." - Opal Viola Victoria Bear Shield

In his debut novel, There There, Tommy Orange tells a story like none other, one that grabs you from the beginning and won't let go at the end. A story of alienation in your own country, of the beauty and ugliness of family, of traditions and ties and living your truth. Tommy's voice is utterly unique and wholly satisfying. Don't miss this book.
