Comment on this article

Poetry. Fiction. Native American Studies.    In this first full collection in nine years, Alexie's poems
and prose show his celebrated passion and wit while also exploring new directions.     Novelist,
storyteller and performer, he won the National Book Award for his YA novel, The Absolutely
True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. His work has been praised throughout the world, but the bedrock
remains what The New York Times Book Review said of his very first book: "Mr. Alexie's
of the major lyric voices of our time."
