Critical Insights: Sherman Alexie

Noticed initially as a Native American author, Sherman Alexie has since achieved a reputation as a significant figure in the American literary landscape. The essays in this volume have been chosen to address the interests and needs of a broad range of readers, from students seeking further insights to teachers who hope to deepen their understanding to scholars who wish to join a conversation among their peers. In his citation of War Dances as the winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award, poet Al Young said that the book "taps every vein and nerve, every tissue, every issue that quickens the current blood-pulse," lauding Alexie for "the caring, eye-opening beauty of this rollicking, bittersweet gem of a book." The intention and purpose of this volume is to provide critical insights worthy of that achievement.
