It always seems to me that historical knowledge comes in waves when picked up for, “discovery” and discussion. I read There, There a few m months ago and while I took the characters stories as events that mirror those of indigenous people living in America, I left it at that. This shows me, that my reading is not deep enough and reading fiction can and often should push us to learn about this reflection in the physical world. Last night i watched Drunk History and one of the depictions was of one story in There, There revolving around Alcatraz. Storytelling can be a labyrinth of truth and fiction and it can really benefit us to tease that apart sometimes to learn more about the world and history we are a part of.
