Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A new collection of stories from the author of Reservation Blues about young Native Americans introduces a surprising cast of characters who live and love in two worlds, balancing their Indian heritage and traditions against the realities of the modern world.


Review:

"The stories in this collection are all designed to shock and usually revolve around an action a character perceives as transgressive....[T]he dramatic situations and desires are expressed in a language that lacks intonation....[W]hen the same note is struck over and over again, page after page, the effect is dulled. Readers may start longing for more variation, for complex moral thought, for rise and fall in the language, even for some meaningful exclamations."

Joanna Scott, New York Times Book Review, 05/21/2000

Review:

"[W]hat fuels these stories is rage--rage decanted through black humor....Rage, black humor and lots of sex. Straight, gay and combo platter, but usually somehow pointing toward communion."

Katharine Whittemore, Salon, 06/05/2000

Book Description: Grove Press / Atlantic Monthly Press, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 208 x 137 mm. Brand New Book. A beloved American writer whose books are championed by critics and readers alike, Sherman Alexie has been hailed by Time as one of the better new novelists, Indian or otherwise . Now his acclaimed new collection, The Toughest Indian in the Word, which received universal praise in hardcover, is available in paperback.In these stories, we meet the kind of American Indians we rarely see in literature -- the kind who pay their bills, hold down jobs, fall in and out of love. A Spokane Indian journalist transplanted from the reservation to the city picks up a hitchhiker, a Lummi boxer looking to take on the toughest Indian in the world. A Spokane son waits for his diabetic father to come home from the hospital, tossing out the Hershey Kisses the father has hidden all over the house. An estranged interracial couple, separated in the midst of a traffic accident, rediscover their love for each other. A white drifter holds up an International House of Pancakes, demanding a dollar per customer and someone to love, and emerges with $42 and an overweight Indian he dubs Salmon Boy. Sherman Alexie s voice is one of remarkable passion, and these stories are love stories -- between parents and children, white people and Indians, movie stars and ordinary people. Witty, tender, and fierce, The Toughest Indian in the World is a virtuoso performance by one of the country s finest writers. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780802138002
