Description

‘An exceptional novel … a cause for celebration’ Washington Post

‘The most accomplished Native American writer of her generation’ The New York Times Book Review

Tayo, a young Second World War veteran of mixed ancestry, is coming home. But, returning to the Laguna Pueblo Reservation, he finds himself scarred by his experiences as a prisoner of war, and further wounded by the rejection he finds among his own people. Only by rediscovering the traditions, stories and ceremonies of his ancestors can he start to heal, and find peace.

‘Ceremony is the greatest novel in Native American literature. It is one of the greatest novels of any time and place’ Sherman Alexie
