Ten Little Indians

by Sherman Alexie
£8.99   paperback  Vintage (2005)

Ten Little Indians by Sherman Alexie Sherman Alexie offers nine poignant and emotionally resonant stories about Native Americans who find themselves at personal and cultural crossroads.
 
In The Life and Times of Estelle Walks Above, an intellectual feminist Spokane Indian woman saves the lives of dozens of white women all around her, to the bewilderment of her only child.
 
In Do You Know Where I Am? two college sweethearts rescue a lost cat - a simple act that has profound moral consequences for the rest of their lives together.
 
In What You Pawn I Will Redeem, a homeless Indian man must raise $1,000 in twenty-four hours to buy back the fancy dance outfit stolen from his grandmother fifty years earlier.
 
Even as they often make us laugh, Sherman Alexie's stories are driven by a haunting lyricism and naked candour that cut to the heart of the human experience.

"Sherman Alexie, writing at his winsome best... Warm, revealing, invitingly roundabout stories."
(New York Times)
