Meli (melihooker) | 3125 comments Tommy Orange's debut novel There There is a collection of 12 individuals' stories interwoven into one cohesive book ruminating on the human condition, exposing universal truths of life while also speaking to that which is uniquely specific to the Native American experience of Oakland California Native Americans.

It is a powerful book I would recommend to any reader. Subject matter dealing with addiction, aging, identity, guilt, and shame are familiar, but at the same time sharing the voices, if even fictional in this case, that most readers have no exposure to, voices that have not been or are not heard now.

Highly recommend, but be aware this book deals with heavy subject matter.
Be in the right frame of mind or mood to handle the weight.
