Noticed initially as a Native American author, Sherman Alexie has since achieved a
reputation as a significant figure in the American literary landscape. The essays in this set discuss many different aspects of Alexie’s works. Original essays include a comparison of Alexie’s The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven to Jhumpa Lahiri’s Interpreter of Maladies. Other essays discuss the juxtaposition of poetry and prose fiction in an examination of Reservation Blues, a close reading of The Summer of the Black Widows, and an overview of his work as writer and director of two films, Smoke Signals and The Business of Fancydancing.
