Check out some of the early praise:
“Hokeah’s prose gorgeously weaves authentic local vernacular with the lyrical notes of hard-won insight. This novel belongs on every recommended booklist for fans of literary fiction.” –Susan Power, author of The Grass Dancer
“Oscar Hokeah is the real deal. A new voice with ancient music.” –Luis Alberto Urrea, author of The House of Broken Angels
“Hokeah has accomplished something unique here. In his quietly brilliant depiction of his Cherokee/Kiowa/Mexican heritage he has dipped into his medicine bag and gifted us with a small but compelling masterpiece. This should be required reading for every American.” —Kiana Davenport, author of Shark Dialogues
“Hokeah offers us a rich tapestry of interconnected narratives, a chorus of distinct voices battling against history, failing bodies, and barren landscapes. The scale and beauty reminds you of One Hundred Years of Solitude set in Oklahoma. Here’s a True American Epic.” –Gabriel Bump, author of Everywhere You Don’t Belong
“With solid Tommy Orange vibes, the first novel from Oscar Hokeah is a coming-of-age tale told from a chorus of multigenerational voices . . . One to watch, for sure.” —BookPage, 2022 Preview: Most Anticipated Fiction
“Hokeah beats the drum and stomps, announcing his power is back, the people have returned with powerful stories. He weaves a tale that is unforgettable and fortifying. I couldn’t put the book down.” –Jimmy Santiago Baca, author of A Place to Stand
“Oscar Hokeah is a storyteller for the ages. Wise and compassionate, Calling for a Blanket Dance is a gift.” –Debra Magpie Earling, author of Perma Red
“As a plethora of voices accompany Ever Geimausaddle’s upbringing, we learn of challenges and resilience, the multilingual language of hope and the grace of forgiveness. Their lives, tender and difficult, full of awe and learning, remind us that the borderlands are fluid regions where families have intermingled, overcome challenges, and danced together for centuries.” –Cristina Rivera Garza, author of Grieving: Dispatches from a Wounded Country
