An exceptional novel—a cause for celebration.
--The Washington Post Book World
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.
Her assurance, her gravity, her flexibility are all wonderful gifts.
--The New York Review of Books
The novel is very deliberately a ceremony in itself—demanding but confident and beautifully written.
--The Boston Globe

There are no chapters in the book and almost like a Quentin Tarantino Movie (Timeline shifts around and you have to get a grasp of where you're at, but the clues are there.)Published 2 months ago by Jesus Reyes
