Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Fresh off his National Book Award win, Alexie delivers a heartbreaking, hilarious collection of stories that explores the precarious balance between self-preservation and external responsibility in art, family, and the world at large. With unparalleled insight into the minds of artists, laborers, fathers, husbands, and sons, Alexie populates his stories with ordinary men on the brink of exceptional change. In a bicoastal journey through the consequences of both simple and monumental life choices, Alexie introduces us to personal worlds as they transform beyond return. 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 a vintage-clothing store owner’s failing marriage 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 young boy discovers his self-worth while writing obituaries for his local newspaper. Brazen and wise, War Dances takes us to the heart of what it means to be human. This provocative new work is Alexie at the height of his powers.

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.
