Published in early June by Random House, There There has won raves in the book media. Author Colm Tobin of The New York Times said it all with the headline of his review two weeks later: Yes, Tommy Orange’s New Novel Really Is That Good. "Orange makes Oakland into a 'there' that becomes all the more concretely, emphatically and fully so in a novel that deals, in tones that are sweeping and subtle, large-gestured and nuanced, with what the notion of belonging means for Native Americans," Tobin writes. Other favorable reviews have appeared in The Washington Post, The Guardian and The Globe and Mail. Orange is currently on a book tour. Upcoming dates include September 8 in San Francisco, September 20 in Los Angeles and September 24 in Chicago, Illinois.
