Wow. Wow wow wow. Sherman Alexie is a brilliant writer. His humor comes effortlessly, his characters are vivid and three-dimensional, and all of his stories are relatable, yet infused with all the uniqueness that the Spokane Indian culture delivers to its characters--the good and the bad. I found that some of the stories, jokes, and themes got a bit repetitive as the collection went along, but overall I am deeply satisfied with my first Alexie read, and will definitely be checking out this author's other works!

Beautifully crafted collection of nine short stories that are funny and heartbreaking and memorable in their truth and beauty. It's no coincidence that all the stories center around Native American protagonists, facing the world in their own unique way, but battling the same kinds of demons of loss and love and life and death that we all face. Alexie is a national treasure.
