Review Quotes




Praise for Ceremony

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
