I read this book a few years back, and just read it again and enjoyed it again. Sherman Alexie is an ace at the short story in this book. Sure, the stories share a lot of themes and even situations, but this is true of a majority of writers. All the stories are about Indians, but more importantly, they’re about humans. The collection includes the first, and maybe still the best, Alexie story I had read, “What You Pawn I Will Redeem.” The one downfall is the author’s overuse of exclamation points. They get a little annoying after a while! Ease up, man! But other than some minor grudges I would definitely recommend this book, and of course short story collections in general. You can read one story in twenty minutes, people!!!!
