EP23: Alexie Blasphemy

ShermanAlexie

Hosts Scott Winter and Stacey Waite talk with our Prairie Schooner Native American portfolio editor for our latest issue, Sherman Alexie. He also reads a little from his latest book, Blasphemy. There is a distinction to the Native American experience enfolded into literary Americana that Alexie sums up best, "PowWow dancing and Hemingway, that's the Literary Reservation." This uniquely shaped American identity runs through the latest Prairie Schooner issue like hard twine and hundreds have come to see Alexie's special brand of comic, special brand of tragic as the leading voice for a new group of Native American writers showcased in our Alexie Picks episode. You can download these shows for free right here as well as purchase our latest issue from the Shop.
