ONE STICK SONG

   One Stick Song is new collection of poems and short prose by Sherman Alexie. Alexie's poems, fiction and essays have won him an international following since his first book, The Business of Fancydancing, was published in 1992. Smoke Signals, the film he adapted from one of his short stories and co-produced, enlarged his audience still further.

   Alexie's honors include awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Lila Wallace Reader's Digest Foundation, and the Washington State Arts Commission, and a citation as "One of 20 Best American Novelists Under the Age of 40" from Granta magazine. An enrolled Spokane/Coeur d'Alene Indian, Alexie lives in Seattle with his wife and son.

WHAT CRITICS HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT SHERMAN ALEXIE'S POETRY:
"So wide-ranging, dexterous and consistently capable of raising your neck hair that it enters at once into our ideas of who we are and how we might be….Mr. Alexie's is one of the major lyrical voices of our time."

--James R. Kincaid, The New York Times Book Review

 
  "A young writer who is taking the literary world by storm…a superb chronicler of the Native American experience…an overwhelmingly exciting voice…he is a master of language, writing beautifully, unsparingly, and straight to the heart."
--Chris Fatz, The Nation
   "There is enough love, heartbreak, and ironic intelligence in this small book to fill an encyclopedia….Strong medicine&emdash;but a medicine needed by us all."
--Joseph Bruchac
   Sherman Alexie's recent success as a novelist overshadows the fact that he is one of the best young poets writing in America today….[This book] proves Alexie is a poet first and a fiction writer second."
--Ray Gonzalez, The Bloomsbury Review
"An impressive mosaic of emotions and subjects, deployed with wit, intelligence and haunting insights….Alexie's vision is Whitmanic in all his embracing love of humanity."
--Philadelphia Inquirer
