Although the essay trick began to gleam though before the end, it was not until I had finished the book and read the "about the author" notes that I realized how thoroughly autobiografical it was. I am left pulling for Ms Lone Hill just as much as I pulled for Sis. I will look forward to more from her and wish her the joy of A Brand New Day.
Dana Lone Hill’s powerful debut novel Pointing With Lips is all about relationships. Weaved throughout the book set on the Pine Ridge rez in South Dakota are stories of relationships. Pointing With Lips follows the relationships of Sincere Stongheart to her family, to lovers, to sexuality, to the land, to self discovery, to history, to pain, to loss and ultimately to addiction. Too often books about Native peoples paint Native’s as either victims of history or as noble defenders of some else ideals.
Pointing With Lips strips away the romanticism and portrays Native peoples as we are. If you looking for a book that is a truly authentic look at modern life on the Pine Ridge reservation and all the complexities of history and relationships then Pointing With Lips is a must read for you.
My only suggestion for improvement with this book is that it the editing could have been better; there are a few sentences that begin with a lower case letter, some missing punctuation, and parts where there are "of"s instead of "off"s. It's possible that Lone Hill intended for the book to be this way to create a greater level of authenticity in Sincere's writing, but, as a reader, I found it a bit distracting. That having been said, it wasn't a big deal, and I hope to read more books from Lone Hill in the future!
Thanks, Dana Lone Hill, for enlightening me and helping me understand a lifestyle that is so different than my own.
