The literary legacy of Sherman Alexie so far includes movies, books of fiction and poetry, and essays on reading, reservations, and US politics. He made the hour fly by when we interviewed him earlier this fall.

I think my favorite of his books remains The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, and I liked Flight a lot as well. I found his new collection of stories, War Dances (you can read the title tale here), a bit uneven, but he’s a crackerjack storyteller: funny and reflective and responsive.

One of our site’s regular commentators called Alexie “mouth music.” Have you seen or read any of his work?
