Alexie Featured in WLT
"The July 2010 issue of World Literature Today pays tribute to Sherman Alexie, the featured writer of the 2010 Puterbaugh Festival of International Literature & Culture. As part of a special section devoted to his life and work, in a new interview he talks about the pragmatics of Indian politics, the commercialization of art, his engagement with his critics, Sarah Palin, and much more with characteristic humor, acumen, and abandon. Rounding out the section are two of Alexie’s recent poems; essays on Alexie’s work by Joshua B. Nelson, Scott Andrews, and Susan Bernardin; and an assessment of Native language revitalization by anthropologist Mary S. Linn."
