Almanac of the Dead: A Novel
763 p., hard cover, dust jacket. Larry McMurtry is quoted on the dust jacket as saying about this book: "A brilliant, haunting, and tragic novel of ruin and resistance in the Americas. In a long dialectic, tinted with genius and compelled by a just anger, Leslie Silko dramatizes the often desperate struggle of native peoples in the Americas to keep, at all costs, the core of their culture: their way of seeing, their way of believing, their way of being. If Karl Marx had chosen to make Das Kapital a novel set in the Americas, he might have come out with a book something like this." Fine/fine, in archival quality mylar cover.
