Author Sherman Alexie broke into the literary scene in the mid-'90s with "The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven" and other stories about growing up on a reservation. Since then, he hasn't shied away from sensitive topics like alcoholism and abuse among Native Americans. His book "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian" was on the list of Top 10 most frequently challenged books in America. Alexie joins Forum to talk about his book "Blasphemy," a collection of 15 new stories and 15 old favorites covering topics from donkey basketball to wind turbines.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Sherman Alexie, author of "Blasphemy: New and Selected Stories;" his other works include "Reservation Blues," "Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian" and "The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven"
