Description

Blasphemy: New and Selected Stories is a collection of thirty-one new and selected short stories by Spokane/Coeur d'Alene author Sherman Alexie. A bold and irreverent observer of life among Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest, the daring, versatile, funny, and outrageous Alexie showcases all his talents in his newest collection, Blasphemy, where he unites fifteen beloved classics with fifteen new stories in one sweeping anthology for devoted fans and first-time readers. Included here are some of his most esteemed tales, including “What You Pawn I Will Redeem," “This is What it Means to Say Phoenix, Arizona," “The Toughest Indian in the World," and “War Dances." Alexie's new stories are fresh and quintessential—about donkey basketball leagues, lethal wind turbines, the reservation, marriage, and all species of contemporary American warriors. Sensitive readers may find these mature-themed stories too graphic. Secondary level teachers should read this book prior to selecting for high school libraries due to the coarse language and mature content.
