The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven

Sherman Alexie

When asked how much truth is mixed in with the fiction in his first story collection, Alexie called it “an autobiography of the soul”—the facts and fiction are so intermingled, but the effect was plumbing the depths of his soul, as he worked to find his voice as a writer. Alexie is both a phenomenal writer and inspiring person, and has opened the world of literature to so many young people. And it’s no suprise—his stories are unflinchingly real, raw, and often hit like a sucker-punch.
