Leslie Marmon Silko's sublime Ceremony is almost universally considered one of the finest novels ever written by an American Indian. It is the poetic, dreamlike tale of Tayo, a mixed-blood Laguna Pueblo and veteran of World War II. Tormented by shell shock and haunted by memories of his cousin who died in the war, Tayo struggles on his impoverished reservation. After turning to alcohol to ease his pain, he strives for a better understanding of who he is.More

Worth a re-read
Good reader and not a good fit
I don't know as I did not read it.
Yes the voice is not authentic in that it is written by a non Indian about Native Americans. AS I listened this occurred to me in the seemly romanticized story I heard. I don't think someone from another culture could write something that sounds different. Maybe he should stick to writing about his own and let natives write their own.
I think the reader did a great job.
Well the veteran part sounded real and I like that it reveled what so many go through.
