by | Read by Sherman Alexie

Fiction • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

In this collection of poetry, short stories, and autobiographical vignettes, Alexie continues to explore his sense of self in relation to the complex history of Native Americans. His intonation evokes the Native American oral tradition, while his prose represents a much deeper mixing of his two polarized cultures. Alexie proves an enjoyable, if limited, narrator. All the character voices are rendered through both his literary point of view and his vocal presentation, making some a bit narrow in substance. Yet his delivery also works well for many pieces since Alexie, or his doppelganger, often serves as the center of a given work. He particularly shines at projecting the extensive emotional range of his works, especially humor. L.E. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2010]
