              The Best American Poetry (Hardback, 2015 ed.)

              By Lehman, David; Alexie, Sherman

              The premier anthology of contemporary American poetry continues with an exceptional volume edited by award-winning novelist and poet Sherman Alexie. Since its debut in 1988, The Best American Poetry has become a mainstay for the direction and spirit of American poetry. Each volum...e in the series presents the year's most extraordinary new poems and writers. Guest editor Sherman Alexie's picks for The Best American Poetry 2015 highlight the depth and breadth of the American experience. Culled from electronic and print journals, the poems showcase some of our leading luminaries--Amy Gerstler, Terrance Hayes, Ron Padgett, Kay Ryan--and introduce a number of outstanding younger poets taking their place in the limelight. A leading figure since his breakout poetry collection The Business of Fancydancing in 1992, Sherman Alexie won the National Book Award for his novel The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. He describes himself as lucky enough to be a full-time writer and has written short stories, novels, screenplays, and essays--but he is at his core a poet. As always, series editor David Lehman's foreword assessing the state of the art kicks off the book, followed by an introductory essay in which Alexie discusses his selections. The Best American Poetry 2015 is a guide to who's who and what's happening in American poetry today.

              By Alexie, Sherman

              The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven: Stories (EPUB ebook)

              By Alexie, Sherman

              Sherman Alexie's darkly humorous story collection weaves memory, fantasy, and stark reality to powerfully evoke life on the Spokane Indian Reservation. The twenty-four linked tales in Alexie's debut collection-an instant classic-paint an unforgettable portrait of life on and arou...nd the Spokane Indian Reservation, a place where "Survival = Anger x Imagination," where HUD houses and generations of privation intertwine with history, passion, and myth. We follow Thomas Builds-the-Fire, the longwinded storyteller no one really listens to; his half-hearted nemesis, Victor, the basketball star turned recovering alcoholic; and a wide cast of other vividly drawn characters on a haunting journey filled with humor and sorrow, resilience and resignation, dreams and reality. Alexie's unadulterated honesty and boundless compassion come together in a poetic vision of a world in which the gaps between past and present are not really gaps after all. The basis for the acclaimed 1998 feature film Smoke Signals,the Chicago Tribune noted, "The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven . . . is for the American Indian what Richard Wright's Native Son was for the black American in 1940." The collection received a Special Citation for the PEN/Hemingway Award for Best First Fiction. This ebook edition features a new prologue from the author, as well as an illustrated biography and rare photos from Sherman Alexie's personal collection.

              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

              Poetry. Native American Studies. ANOTHER ATTEMPT AT RESCUE is the first collection by M.L. Smoker whose work has garnered praise from Sherman Alexie and Jim Harrison. M.L. Smoker's poems are tough, funny, magical, but not in a goofy way. This is blue-collar magic. Unemployed magi...c. Living on government cheese magic. I highly recommend this collection --Sherman Alexie. Smoker is an Assiniboine/Sioux writer from the Fort Peck Reservation in Montana.
