RED FEATHER'S LEMONADE

Tommy Orange’s There There begins with a blistering prologue & doesn’t let up. In its pages, 12 individuals show life from the perspective of urban Native Americans in Orange’s Oakland, CA, hometown. Some of his characters eschew alcohol for powerful reasons, so for them I’m offering a summer quencher served in a glass from a long-shuttered Oakland watering hole.
