Sherman Alexie is one of today's most acclaimed and popular writers. Now, with Ten Little Indians, he offers eleven poignant and emotionally resonant new stories about Native Americans--who, like all Americans, 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 around her, to the bewilderment of her only child, now a grown man who looks back at his life with equal parts fondness, amusement, and regret. 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. Even as they often make us laugh, Sherman Alexie's stories are driven by a haunting lyricism and naked candor that cur to the heart of the human experience, shedding brilliant light on what happens when we grow into and out of each other.
