Sherman Alexie:

PO Box 2071 New Market Station
Niagara Falls NY 14301

30 pp., $4.00

Alexie is member of the Spokane/Coer d'Alene tribe in Washington state. He sez that "Native American writing is about survival", and the survival of his own voice is testament to that. Strong poetry that acknowledges history without nostalgia, and speaks as a survivor, not a victim.--luigi
