Publisher's Summary

National Book Award winner and New York Times best-selling author Sherman Alexie infuses his writing with biting wit and poignant insight.
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.

Incredible talent

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.
