In his darkly comic short story collection, the author brilliantly weaves memory, fantasy, and stark realism to paint a complex, grimly ironic portrait of life in and around the Spokane Indian Reservation. These twenty-four interlinked tales are narrated by characters raised on humiliation and government-issue cheese, and yet are filled with passion and affection, myth and dream. There is Victor, who as a nine-year-old crawled between his unconscious parents hoping that the alcohol seeping through their skins might help him sleep, Thomas Builds-the-Fire, who tells his stories long after people stop listening, and Jimmy Many Horses, dying of cancer, who writes letters on stationary that reads "From the Death Bed of Jimmy Many Horses III," even though he actually writes then on his kitchen table. Against a backdrop of alcohol, car accidents, laughter, and basketball, Alexie depicts the distances between Indians and whites, reservation Indians and urban Indians, men and women, and mostly poetically between modern Indians and the traditions of the past.… (mais)

Sherman Alexie is a powerful, poignant, and hilarious writer. This is a fantastic short story collection, and one which I will be glad to teach next semester. ( )

The stories give you a unadulterated glimpse into the lives of Indians and their struggles, but it’s repetitive, and the disjointed, raw, write whatever pops into your head at the moment style wasn’t to my taste. ( )

Before I begin this review, it's necessary to acknowledge the allegations that Sherman Alexie assaulted multiple women (which he says are true,) and say that I believe these women. I also acknowledge the ways in which this and other behavior has impacted the publishing of stories about Native people, and encourage folks to read books by Native authors other than Alexie (especially Native women); I'm happy to offer recommendations if people need them.

These stories paint a specific world and it's fascinating to move through it and see the ways in which they interact and contradict, that they aren't always in the same "world" (in the sense of a continuity) but contain many similar characters. It's also clearly a book written in a specific time by a person thinking about his relationship to specific things; this edition came with a preface/introduction that I a dialogue where Alexie explores some recurring themes and I think it's fairly clear that these stories are a product of that time of his life. I can see how it would be powerful for folks to read and consider; and it is certainly a world he has created here, or variations on it, without relying on a novel-structure sense of continuity. ( )

NOT THE SAME AS THE 1993 WORK. This is the 20th anniversary edition (2005+) with two additional stories: "Flight" and "Junior Polatkin's Wild West Show."
