Darrell Dennis narrates these 12 interconnected short stories with calculated restraint, empathy, and a sure sense of the author's voice. His gift for timing gives the Native American protagonist a powerful self-consciousness and convincing sense of his people (Maine's Penobscot tribe) and their place. The central character, David, tells the first-person stories in a warts-and-all-style that is delivered in a convincing tone and careful cadence. The short fictions that comprise this audiobook teeter from funny to sad and have the feel of real experience. This debut collection captures the dark contours of the rez--drugs, drink, petty crime, lack of opportunity. The author has created an isolated and insular world. A.D.M.
