Synopsis:

The National Book Award-winning author of The Absolutely True Story of a Part-Time Indian offers a new collection of short stories, including the title story, in which a famous writer, who just learned he may have a brain tumor, must decide how to care for his distant, American Indian father who is slowly dying.


Review:

"Sherman Alexie mixes up comedy and tragedy, shoots it through with tenderness, then delivers with a provocateur's don't-give-a-damn flourish. He's unique, and...WAR DANCES is another case in point."

Mary Ann Gwinn, Seattle Times, 10/04/2009

Review:

"Alexie, who writes with a conversational style, has a wry, subversive sensibility that emerges both in the text and the forms it takes. Funny as it is, WAR DANCES includes poems written as call-and-response, a catechism in which the answers veer off strangely, a poem called a haiku that isn't one, and stories that contain lists, a Q&A, and a hail of bullet points. The structure is sophisticated yet playful, a subtle way to bring lightness to heavy topics such as senility, bigotry, cancer and loneliness."

Carolyn Kellogg, Los Angeles Times, 10/16/2009

Book Description: Grove. 1 Cloth(s), 2009. hard. Book Condition: New. (2010 PEN/Faulkner Award Winner) The winner of the PEN/Hemingway Award, the American Book Award, and the National Book Award, Sherman Alexie presents this heartbreaking, hilarious collection of stories exploring the precarious balance between self-preservation and responsibility—to art, family, and the world at large. In the title story, a famous writer must decide how to care for his distant father who is slowly dying a "natural Indian death" from alcohol and diabetes, just as he learns that he himself may have a brain tumor. Alexie dissects the failing marriage of a vintage clothing storeowner, and his courtship of a married photographer in various airports across the country; what happens when a politician's son commits a hate crime; and how a boy discovers his self-worth while writing obituaries for his local newspaper."Alexie has a wry, subversive sensibility. The structure [of this book] is sophisticated yet playful, a subtle way to bring lightness to heavy topics such as senility, bigotry, cancer, and loneliness . a mix tape of a book, with many voices, pieces of different length, shifting rhythms, an evolving story."—LATimes 209.
