Sherman Alexie

On a promotional tour for his latest novel, Flight, Sherman Alexie read in Bloomington last Wednesday. There really is only one word to describe the perfomance: wow. Alexie read poetry (!), did some comedy, told some stories, and was just generally brilliant. He also took some time out to let us record him reading his poem "A Short History of Arm-Horses," featured in our 2003, 25th anniversary issue. I'll post that on the Bluecast sometime in the near future. Stay tuned.
