Summary

War Dances was a national best seller- First serial of "War Dances" ran in The New Yorker- Alexie's books have sold over one million copies worldwide- Alexie is the recipient of the National Book Award, the Stranger Genius Award in Literature, the Malamud Award from PEN/Faulkner Foundation, and is one of The New Yorker: 20 Writers for the 21st Century and Granta: Twenty Best American Novelists Under 40.

In his first new fiction since winning the National Book Award for The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, best-selling author Sherman Alexie delivers a virtuoso collection of tender, witty, and soulful stories that expertly capture modern relationships from the most diverse angles.

War Dances brims with Alexie's poetic and revolutionary prose, and reminds us once again why he ranks as one of our country's finest writers. With bright insight into the minds of artists, entrepreneurs, fathers, husbands, and sons, Alexie populates his stories with average men on the brink of exceptional change: In the title story, a son recalls his father's "natural Indian death" from alcohol and diabetes, just as he learns that he himself may have a brain tumor; "The Ballad of Paul Nonetheless," dissects a vintage clothing store owner's failing marriage and courtship of a Puma-clad stranger in airports across the country; and "Breaking and Entering" recounts a film editor's fateful confrontation with an thieving adolescent. Brazen and wise War Dances takes us to the heart of what it means to be human. The new beginnings, successes, mistakes, and regrets that make up our daily lives are laid bare in this wide-ranging new work that is quintessential Alexie.

Brilliant as ever August 3, 2011

I love Sherman Alexie--I haven't read anything of his I didn't like. That being said, his latest is pure Alexie, humorous, ironic, and always thought-provoking. As usual, his writing here is jaw-dropping. Some sentences must be reread because of their beauty and power. Good product, arrived ahead of schedule, and in new condition as advertised by seller. Overall I experience no problems.
