In the fifteen years since young Ray-Ray Echota was killed in a police shooting, his parents and siblings have each been entangled in private grief. But as their annual family bonfire draws near, they feel a strange blurring of the boundaries between normal life and the spirit world. Steeped in Cherokee myth and history, this is a meditation on family, grief, and the power of stories—both personal and ancestral—from the author of the National Book Award finalist Where the Dead Sit Talking.

"A marvel. With a few sly gestures, a humble array of piercingly real characters and an apparently effortless swing into the dire dreamlife, Brandon Hobson delivers an act of regeneration and solace."—Jonathan Lethem

"A haunted work, full of voices old and new. It is about a family's reckoning with loss and injustice, and it is about a people trying for the same. The journey of this family's way home is full—in equal measure—of melancholy and love."—Tommy Orange
