              A moving and deeply engaging debut novel about a young Native American man struggling to find strength in his identity, from a stellar new voice in literary fiction. Told in a series of voices, Calling for a Blanket Dance takes us into the life of Ever Geimausaddle through the mu...ltigenerational perspectives of his family as they soldier through a myriad of difficulties: his father's sudden kidney failure and subsequent disability, his mother's struggle to hold on to her job and care for her husband, the constant resettlement of the family, and Ever's own bottled-up rage at the instability all around him. Meanwhile, all of Ever's relatives have ideas about who he is and who he should be. His Cherokee grandmother urges the family to move across the state to find security; his dying grandfather hopes to reunite him with his heritage through stomp dances and masks; at 18, his Kiowa cousin encourages him to spend his per cap money on an illegally good time. And once an adult, Ever becomes as weak and directionless as his father. But no one, except Ever, can save Ever. How will this young man visualize a place for himself when the world hasn't given him a place to start with? Honest, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting, Calling for a Blanket Dance is the story of how Ever Geimausaddle found his way to home.
