“Reservations’ [by Cody T Luff] is a deeply felt story that takes on the heartbreaking plight of Native Americans, a much maligned people who are caught in the tragic throes of history, our homegrown genocide. The story hinges on a friendship between a world-weary Native American man and a well-intentioned white man, two characters who are revealed in full honesty and complexity. Making people place, the author paints his settings (in Montana and Maine) in evocative detail—the landscapes, the human habitations, the cultural milieu. And the author accomplishes it all with a controlled and convincing hand, an indication of much more terrific work to come.Jeff Renard Allen
