Native author Morgan Talty
@Morgan_J_Talty Writer / pαnawάhpskewi from the Penobscot Indian Nation / NIGHT OF THE LIVING REZ out now from @tin_house
While soaked in pain and broken promises, Night of The Living Rez delivers with a grace and dignity on par with the writings of Craig Lesley, Dawn Dumont, James Welch and Joseph Dandurand. Morgan Talty delivers on so many levels and proves that this is why Indigenous Literature continues to be its own unique and sacred blessing. I loved this book. Loved it. And I can't wait to see what Morgan Talty does next. I am a fan for life. Mahsi cho, Morgan!--Richard Van Camp, author of The Lesser Blessed
A collection of stories set in a Native community in Maine, Talty's book centers questions of what it means to be Penobscot today--what it means to live through and reckon with historical tragedies. Talty grapples with such complicated inheritances with tenderness and humor, with characters ranging from a boy who finds an old curse in a jar to a grandmother struggling with Alzheimer's.-- "LitHub"
