There There explores the themes of Native peoples living in urban spaces (Urban Indians), and issues of ambivalence and complexity related to Natives’ struggles with identity and authenticity. There There was a finalist for the 2019 Pulitzer Prize and was also awarded a Gold Medal for First Fiction by the California Book Awards.
