Read in September, 2009

Nine short stories by Sherman Alexie. My copy says he was "selected by The New Yorker as one of the best American fiction writers under 40". He is an Indian and he writes about modern Indians living in on and off the "res" in the American North West.

Each story is quite different - from startling to moving. (And in my view, the editor chose to put the startling ones first..)

I quite enjoy reading about people and ideas I have not encountered, and while I only give it 3 stars, it was a quick read and very worth while.
