About this Item

A just about "as new"/seemingly unread copy. Unclipped. Previous owner named written on front endpaper. 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, with forgiveness and resilient hope. Alexie writes with affection, grace, and, most of all, passion. He is a modern mythmaker, 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. The Bloomsbury Review said "Alexie blends an almost despairing social realism with jolting flashes of visionary fantasy and a quirky sense of gallows humor," and the Chicago Tribune called it "Poetic [and] unremittingly honest.The Long Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven is for the American Indian what Richard Wright's Native Son was for the black American in 1940".
