Sherman Alexie’s stature as a writer of stories, poems, and novels has soared over the course of his twenty-book, twenty-year career. His wide-ranging, acclaimed stories from the last two decades have established him as a star in contemporary American literature. A bold and irreverent observer of life among Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest, the daring, versatile, funny, and outrageous Alexie showcases all his talents in Blasphemy, where he unites twelve beloved classics with twelve 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 his most recent, War Dances.” Alexie’s twelve new stories are fresh and quintessential, about amateur and donkey basketball leagues, extreme hoarding, lethal wind turbines, marriage, and all species of contemporary warriors in America today.
An indispensable collection of new and classic stories, Blasphemy reminds us, on every thrilling page, why Sherman Alexie is one of our greatest contemporary writers and a true master of the short story.

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian
I saw Sherman Alexie in an interview with Bill Moyers, on PBS. He fascinated me with his honesty and wit! I then bought all of his books and have gone on one of the most amazing journeys, both inward and outward. It was a great, "true" narrative, sometimes sad, always funny. I'll never look at an Indigenous Person the same way!
This is life changing and inspiring. I can't wait to read more of whatever Sherman has to say, wish he would run for president!!!
