Brandon Hobson's remarkable, moving novel, Where the Dead Sit Talking , follows year-old Sequoyah as he becomes the foster child of Harold and Agnes Troutt, a middle-aged couple already fostering year-old George and year-old Rosemary. While these writers are important to me as a reader, a writer, and as a Cherokee, I should add that there are also many short story collections, books of poetry, and memoirs that represent an active campaign for the traditions and values of Native American culture. And while this list contains such well-established writers as Momaday and Erdrich, there are newer, younger Native American writers out there right now creating amazing works of art—people like Layli Long Soldier, Terese Mailhot, and Tommy Orange, whose names and works will become are already becoming a powerful and constructive force in Native American literature.
