Sherman Alexie

People seem to love or hate this Native Indian poet's writings. Read more about him HERE (I'm one who loves his work!)

Now you've gone and gotten my interest up...matter of fact the most interesting thing I've read all night, from Cafe Cafe to blogs, poetry and back again.

Makes me want to read him.

Thanks, Pris.

I have his book, Old Skins, New Wine (Hope I have the title exact..he has another similarly titled one and my copy is buried under other poetry books at the moment). That book is outstanding. The poem where he takes the 'voice' of Custer is especially moving and magnificent.
