Ceremony (Contemporary American Fiction Series)

Review:

An exceptional novela cause for celebration. (The Washington Post Book World) Her assurance, her gravity, her flexibility are all wonderful gifts. (The New York Review of Books) The novel is very deliberately a ceremony in itselfdemanding but confident and beautifully written. (The Boston Globe) Ceremony is the greatest novel in Native American literature. It is one of the greatest novels of any time and place. I have read this book so many times that I probably have it memorized. I teach it and I learn from it and I am continually in awe of its power, beauty, rage, vision, and violence.
