Description

Ball games, cars, and romances: the icons and battlefields of modern life.

In twenty-two linked stories, with infinite humour and pathos, Sherman Alexie explores some of the major issues of our time: the pull between the urban and the rural, the future and the past; the trials and tribulations of young adulthood; the comlex density of daily life. A modern mythmaker with a sharp eye for irony, Sherman Alexie’s focus is an American Indian reservation, but his playground is the world.

Publisher Review

"So wide-ranging, dexterous and consistently capable of raising your neck hair that it enters at once into our ideas of who we are and who we might be" * New York Times Book Review * "I laughed and laughed and couldn't stop reading... Sherman Alexie is simply one of the best new writers we have" -- Leslie Marmon Silko "Poetic and unremittingly honest . . . The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven is for the American Indian what Richard Wright's Native Son was for the black American in 1940." * The Chicago Tribune *
