Summary: Sherman Alexie has been acclaimed by Time as "one of the better new novelists, Indian or otherwise," and his books have been compared to those of Richard Wright and James Baldwin in their immense lyric power and revolutionary spirit. Now he returns to the short story, in his first new collection since the best-seller The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven. In these stories we meet the kind of American Indians we rarely see in literature -- the kind w ...show moreho pay their bills, hold down jobs, fall in and out of love. A Spokane Indian journalist transplanted from the reservation to the city picks up a hitchhiker, a Lummi boxer looking to take on the toughest Indian in the world. A diabetic Spokane child waits for his father to return from the hospital; the kid has "nearly normal blood sugar, a bag full of hypodermic needles, and half of his left foot." An estranged interracial couple, separated in the midst of a traffic accident, rediscover their love for each other. A white drifter holds up an International House of Pancakes, demanding a dollar per customer and someone to love, and emerges with $42 and an overweight Indian he dubs Salmon Boy. Sherman Alexie's voice conveys remarkable passion, and these stories are love stories -- between parents and children, white people and Indians, movie stars and ordinary people. Witty, tender, and fierce, The Toughest Indian in the World is a virtuoso performance by one of the country's finest writers. ...show less
