“Kurt Vonnegut has long been in the standing of the only author who wrote a short story that not only left an impression on me, but made me fall in love (See “Long Walk to Forever” from Welcome to the Monkey House). Of course I should’ve known that Sherman Alexie could join those ranks. This is a short story collection for people who hate short stories . . . because it’s amazing!”—Lindsay McGuirk, Village Books, Bellingham.
