Changing Hands Bookstore is proud to partner with the Arizona Republic for their monthly
"Republic Recommends" selections. November's pick: The Turquoise Ledge by Leslie Marmon Silko.
MacArthur fellow Leslie Marmon Silko, whose legendary 1978 novel, Ceremony, Larry McMurtry calls "one of the two or three best first novels of her generation" and Sherman Alexie calls "one of the greatest novels of any time and place," presents The Turquoise Ledge, her first book since 2000's Gardens in the Dunes. Combining memoir with family history and personal reflections, Silko takes readers along on her daily walks through the arroyos and ledges of the Sonoran desert. Influenced by Native American storytelling traditions, Silko contemplates the spiritual power of the natural world, of what desert creatures and landscapes can communicate to us, and how they are all linked.
