              Alexie's prose startles and dazzles with unexpected, impossible-to-anticipate moves. These are cultural love stories, and we laugh on every page with a fist tight around our hearts. -- The Boston Globe Poetic and unremittingly honest . . . The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in H...eaven is for the American Indian what Richard Wright's Native Son was for the black American in 1940. -- Chicago Tribune Sherman Alexie's celebrated first collection, The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven, established its author as one of America's most important and provocative voices. The basis for the award-winning movie Smoke Signals, it remains one of his best loved and widely praised books twenty years after its initial publication. Vividly weaving memory, fantasy, and stark reality to paint a portrait of life in and around the Spokane Indian reservation, this book introduces some of Alexie's most beloved characters, including Thomas Builds-the-Fire, the storyteller who no one seems to listen to, and his compatriot, Victor, the sports hero who turned into a recovering alcoholic. Now with an updated introduction from Alexie, these twenty-four tales are narrated by characters raised on humiliation and government-issue cheese, and yet they are filled with passion and affection, myth and charm. Against a backdrop of addiction, car accidents, laughter, and basketball, Alexie depicts the distances between men and women, Indians and whites, reservation Indians and urban Indians, and, most poetically, modern Indians and the traditions of the past.

              A searing, deeply moving memoir about family, love, and loss from the critically acclaimed, bestselling National Book Award winner. When his mother passed away at the age of 78, Sherman Alexie responded the only way he knew how: he wrote. The result is this stunning memoir. Featu...ring 78 poems, 78 essays and intimate family photographs, Alexie shares raw, angry, funny, profane, tender memories of a childhood few can imagine--growing up dirt-poor on an Indian reservation, one of four children raised by alcoholic parents. Throughout, a portrait emerges of his mother as a beautiful, mercurial, abusive, intelligent, complicated woman. YOU DON'T HAVE TO SAY YOU LOVE ME is a powerful account of a complicated relationship, an unflinching and unforgettable remembrance.

              Part thriller, part magical realism, and part social commentary, Indian Killer . . . lingers long past the final page. -- Seattle Weekly A national best seller, Indian Killer is arguably Sherman Alexie's most controversial book to date--a gritty, racially charged literary thrille...r that, over a decade after its first publication, remains an electrifying tale of alienation and justice. A serial murderer called the Indian Killer is terrorizing Seattle, hunting, scalping, and slaughtering white men. Motivated by rage and seeking retribution for his people's violent history, his grizzly MO and skillful elusiveness both paralyze the city with fear and prompt an uprising of racial brutality. Out of the chaos emerges John Smith. Born to Indians but raised by white parents, Smith yearns for his lost heritage. As his embitterment with his dual life increases, Smith falls deeper into vengeful madness and quickly surfaces as the prime suspect. Tensions mount, and while Smith battles to allay the anger that engulfs him, the Indian Killer claims another life. With acerbic wit and chilling page-turning intensity, Alexie takes an unflinching look at what nurtures rage within a race both colonized and marginalized by a society that neither values nor understands it.

              Consid r comme l'un des crivains am ricains les plus talentueux de sa g n ration, Sherman Alexie b tit une oeuvre singuli re et forte, r solument contemporaine. Avec Phoenix, Arizona ou Dix petits Indiens, il s'est impos comme un ma tre de la nouvelle. Son nouveau recueil, couron...n par le prix Pen Faulkner 2010, explore la condition humaine avec davantage de force que bien des romans. Nos relations avec les autres ne seraient-elles en fin de compte que de petites guerres ? Tour tour d sopilant, fantaisiste, po tique ou sardonique, cet Indien-l a une extraordinaire propension rire de tout: des siens, de leurs travers et conformismes comme de leurs qualit s et de leur na vet , mais il sait aussi rire de lui-m me. Le Monde Sherman Alexie r duit en bouillie les clich s et diss que tout ce qui touche l'homme. T l rama Sherman Alexie crit fleur de peau des histoires d bordantes de tendresse. Sombres mais jamais larmoyantes. Et souvent p tries d'humour, cet antiseptique qui nettoie les plus profondes des blessures. L'Express Son humour est irr v rencieux, sa hargne sans fin. Ironique, provocateur, il n'embellit jamais la r alit , les envies d'int gration rat es, la sensation d' tre un tranger partout. Lire Traduit de l'am ricain par Michel Lederer
