The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven by Sherman Alexie: This is a darkly comic short story collection by a Spokane/Coeur d'Alene Indian who has brilliantly woven memory, fantasy, and stark realism to paint a complex ironic portrait of life in and around the Spoke Indian Reservation. Alexie depicts the distances between Indians and whites, reservation Indians and urban Indians, men and women, and most poetically between modern Indians and the traditions of the past in these 22 interlinking tales.
