These lively conversations with the preeminent novelist and cultural critic reveal much about the man, his literary creations, and his critical perspectives on important issues affecting Native peoples in the late twentieth century. Readers gain crucial insights into the genesis of Vizenor's fiction and its imagery, characters, and plots. The book also casts new light on his sometimes controversial ideas about contemporary Native identity, politics, economics, scholarship, and literature. These conversations are particularly valuable for their clarification of concepts and terminology central to Vizenor's work."--Jacket.
