Sherman Alexie

Hour 2
Novelist, poet, film-maker and National Book Award-winning writer, our guest Sherman Alexie grew up on an Indian Reservation fifty miles north of Spokane Washington. “War Dances” is Alexie’s latest book, a collection of short stories filled with characters dealing with complex issues as wide reaching as a failed marriage, alcoholic death, hate crime, obituary writing and courtship. Alexie has received many awards including the O Henry Award, the PEN/Hemingway Award and the 2007 National Book Award in Young People’s Literature for “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.”
