Night of the Living Rez

Buy Now

Morgan Talty’s debut short-story collection transports readers to the Panawahpskek (Penobscot) Nation of Maine. Each of the 12 stories is narrated by David, spanning his childhood on the reservation to a young adulthood defined by opioid addiction. Though Night of the Living Rez probes dark themes—sexual assault, inherited trauma, mental illness—there’s also love and laughter, and hope and forgiveness. It delivers a complex and captivating look at what it’s like to be a young Native person. —Angela HauptB
