National Book Award and PEN/Faulkner Award winner Sherman Alexie presents his new book Blasphemy.
Alexie, an observer of life among Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest, showcases all his talents in his newest collection where he unites fifteen beloved classics with fifteen new stories in one sweeping anthology for devoted fans and first-time readers. Included here are some of his most esteemed tales, including "What You Pawn I Will Redeem," "This is What it Means to Say Phoenix, Arizona," "The Toughest Indian in the World," and "War Dances."
