As a 41-year-old man confronts his own mortality in this collection's title story, he recalls his Spokane Indian father's chilling death from alcoholism and diabetes. Another tale features an eccentric salesman pursuing a married woman from airport to airport. And then there's the film editor who sees nothing wrong with altering footage to fit preconceived views - until he becomes the target of media distortion.

Sherman Alexie really has something that hits home with me - even though we've never met I feel like I know him. I guess part of it is that he writes about my world - where I grew up and where I've lived throughout my adult years - small town Eastern Washington - the reservation, Spokane, Seattle......
Local preference aside, he is truly an amazing talent and has the ability to create characters that are so real and complete. His narration is fantastic - I'd love to hear him narrate the works of other authors. This is a group of short stories - each one a little world within itself that will transport you into the mind of the men he portrays so expertly.

I'm laughing out loud in traffic. Alexie rocks!
How great is it to have the author narrate his own work? His style is superb, but to hear it come from his own voice was spectacular. I have read most of his works, and this one is a perfect blend of powerful subject matter mixed with humor.
