i had recalled reading this book in a Native American Lit class. clearly, i hadn't. the structure of the book is interesting. the beginning 1/3 made me narcoleptic - i fell asleep at least five times. that said, i understand and appreciate the fractured narrative that matches Tayo's fractured psyche. the issues explored are still quite relative today with the Army recruiting minorities and later have a disregard for returning veteran's mental health. Tayo's quest to root himself in his culture is moving. Silko doesn't give easy answers as their are none. Not the most accessible work, surely. but a very interesting novel unlike anything i have read.
