Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Few other contemporary writers seem willing to deal with issues of race, class, and sexuality as explicitly as Alexie ... [War Dances is] a virtuoso performance of wit and pathos, a cultural and familial critique and a son's quiet, worthless scream against the night as his father expires ... [that] reminds me of the early-twentieth-century master of the short form Akutagawa Riyunosuke.... Yet again Sherman Alexie has given us a hell of a ride. -- Anthony Swofford
