Poetry. Fiction. Native American Studies. In this first full collection in nine years, Alexie's poems and prose show his celebrated passion and wit while also exploring new directions. Novelist, storyteller and performer, he won the National Book Award for his YA novel, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. His work has been praised throughout the world, but the bedrock remains what The New York Times Book Review said of his very first book: "Mr. Alexie's is one of the major lyric voices of our time."

Sherman Alexie's poems, fiction, essays and films have won him an international following since his first book, THE BUSINESS OF FANCYDANCING, was published in 1992. Smoke Signals, the film he adapted from one of his short stories and co-produced, enlarged his audience still further. Alexie's awards include the Stranger Genius Award in Literature, the Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards for Excellence in Children’s Literature in Fiction, the National Book Award for Young People's Literature, the Western Literature Association Distinguished Achievement Award, a Pushcart Prize, the Regents' Distinguished Alumnus Award from Washington State University, the 2001 PEN/Malamud Award from PEN/Faulkner Foundation, as well as honors and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Lila Wallace Reader’s Digest Foundation, and a citation as "One of 20 Best American Novelists Under the Age of 40" from GRANTA magazine. An enrolled Spokane/Coeur d'Alene Indian, Alexie lives in Seattle with his wife and sons.
