|Series Title:||Understanding contemporary American literature.|
Daniel Grassian offers a look at a writer immersed in traditional Native American, as well as mainstream American, culture. Grassian takes readers through Alexie's career, and suggests that Alexie's oeuvre reflects his primary artistic challenge: how to write about Indians in a televisual country that distorts and complicates ethnicity itself.
