Description of this Book

Sherman Alexie's stature as a writer has soared over the course of his twenty-book, twenty-year career. His wide-ranging, acclaimed books, from The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven to the PEN/Faulkner award-winning War Dances, have established him as a star in modern literature. In Blasphemy, the daring, versatile, funny, and outrageous Alexie showcases all his talents. Half of the stories here are beloved classics, including 'What Your Pawn I Will Redeem', 'This Is What It Means to Say Phoenix, Arizona', 'The Toughest Indian in the World', and 'War Dances'. The other half are brand-new stories, fresh and quintessentially Alexie, about donkey basketball leagues, lethal wind turbines, the reservation, marriage, and all species of contemporary American warriors. An indispensable collection for devoted fans and first-time readers alike, Blasphemy reminds us, on every thrilling page, why Sherman Alexie is one of America's greatest contemporary writers and a true master of the short story.
