Description

Brewster E. Fitz explores the complex dynamic between the spoken story and the written word, revealing how it carries over from Laguna Pueblo author Leslie Marmon Silko's upbringing and plays out in her writings.

Raised in a culture with a strong oral tradition, Silko also also grew up in a household where books were cherished and reading at the dinner table was not deemed rude, but instead was encouraged. In his examination of Silko’s award-winning literature we gain a better understanding of who Silko, one of America's great storytellers, is.
