I am totally loving Grand Avenue right now. I don't know why I haven't come across this man's writing before. I am also getting into another one of his called Watermelon Nights.

What an interesting background he has too.

BTW, has anyone read Silko's last book?

Greg Sarris is an English professor at UCLA. I never had him for a class, but I sure heard great things about him then. Did I miss it or what?

Hey--which Silko book do you mean? The last one I liked was "Almanac of the Dead," but you need to take your Prozac before you start! I did love the middle part, where she shows how Yoruba spirituality is so close to Southwestern Native--I found that out firsthand! I think I've missed a couple, since Yellow Woman, or whatever that was!

It was called Gardens in the Dunes or something I think. The copy at the NY Public library is NEVER there. I haven't read it yet. It may have come out in 98 or 99.
