Read in September, 2007

Read this book and 3 others by Sherman Alexie prior to his appearance at "Talking Volumes", a collaboration of Minnesota Public Radio, The Loft and other Minnesota groups. Sherman's most recent plublications include a novel for teens "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian" and a novel for adult readers called "Flight". I read 5 of his books (in date of publication order) and found his style evolving and growing as he himself admitted. Sherman is constantly re-inventing himself and has the now relatively unique quality of admitting he has grown beyond earlier ideals and opinions, so much so that he wishes to dis-own one of his novels from the '90's. A refreshing outlook on humanity, with and incredible gift to find humor in even the darkest sides of life.
