Ceremony

Introduction by Larry McMurtry.

The great Native American Novel of a battered veteran returning home to heal his mind and spirit
More than thirty-five years since its original publication, Ceremony remains one of the most profound and moving works of Native American literature, a novel that is itself a ceremony of healing. Tayo, a World War II veteran of mixed ancestry, returns to the Laguna Pueblo Reservation. He is deeply scarred by his experience as a prisoner of the Japanese and further wounded by the rejection he encounters from his people. Only by immersing himself in the Indian past can he begin to regain the peace that was taken from him. Masterfully written, filled with the somber majesty of Pueblo myth, Ceremony is a work of enduring power. The Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition contains a new preface by the author and an introduction by Larry McMurtry.

Rezension
An exceptional novel—a cause for celebration. (The Washington Post Book World)
Her assurance, her gravity, her flexibility are all wonderful gifts. (The New York Review of Books)
The novel is very deliberately a ceremony in itself—demanding but confident and beautifully written. (The Boston Globe)
Ceremony is the greatest novel in Native American literature. It is one of the greatest novels of any time and place. I have read this book so many times that I probably have it memorized. I teach it and I learn from it and I am continually in awe of its power, beauty, rage, vision, and violence. (Sherman Alexie)
Without question Leslie Marmon Silko is the most accomplished Native American writer of her generation. (The New York Times Book Review)
