Author: Sherman Alexie
Publisher: Perennial; First Edition edition (September 1994)
A highly acclaimed collection of short stories by a young Native American writer hailed by the New York Times as "one of the major lyric voices of our time . . . Alexie, a Spokane/Coeur d'Alene Indian, brilliantly weaves characters, themes and language as he evokes the complex density of life in and around the Spokane Indian Reservation, an existence filled with pain, anger and bitterness but also, more importantly, forgiveness and resilient hope . . . Alexie writes with affection, grace, and most of all, passion. He is a modern myth maker with a razor-sharp eye for the ironies of modern Indian life, recording the estrangement between Indians and the rest of the world, while affirming the continuing power of his tribe's cultural history and language."
