Abstract:

Alexie's work is the imaginative expression of his eventful life. This volume, therefore, includes an insightful biographical sketch of Alexie which provides a guide to many of the most noteworthy incidents and circumstances of his life. The combination of controversy, compelling writing, and a dynamic personality has projected Alexie into a unique position in contemporary American culture, and his work has reached a much wider range of readers than would have been anticipated by readers of his first poems. The course of critical scrutiny that followed the publication of Alexie's books is ably assessed in an essay that reaches back to Alexie's early life to lead into the beginning of his appearance in print. It continues as he becomes a part of a visible literary landscape and then a prominent point in its topography. -- Publisher's website.
