What I've Stolen, What I've Earned
Sherman Alexie

Sherman Alexie's poetry career started on a high note in his early twenties and has continued to rise. His first book, The Business of Fancydancing (Hanging Loose Press, 1992) was reviewed on the front cover of The New York Times Book Review: "Mr. Alexie's is one of the major lyric voices of our time," the reviewer wrote. Alexie had already won a National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing Fellowship and a stream of other awards has followed - the PEN/Hemingway Award, the American Book Award, the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Award, the American Library Association Odyssey Award, to name a few-culminating with a National Book Award for his superb novel, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. He has written poetry, novels, short stories, screenplays - 24 books to date - and that doesn't include a huge amount of literary and political journalism. He is a platform performer of enormous popularity. For all his success in every literary form he has tried, Alexie defines himself first and foremost as a poet. This book will show you why.

WHAT CRITICS HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT SHERMAN ALEXIE'S POETRY:
"So wide-ranging, dexterous and consistently capable of raising your neck hair that it enters at once into our ideas of who we are and how we might be….Mr. Alexie's is one of the major lyrical voices of our time."

--James R. Kincaid, The New York Times Book Review

 
  "A young writer who is taking the literary world by storm…a superb chronicler of the Native American experience…an overwhelmingly exciting voice…he is a master of language, writing beautifully, unsparingly, and straight to the heart."
--Chris Fatz, The Nation
   "There is enough love, heartbreak, and ironic intelligence in this small book to fill an encyclopedia….Strong medicine&emdash;but a medicine needed by us all."
--Joseph Bruchac
   Sherman Alexie's recent success as a novelist overshadows the fact that he is one of the best young poets writing in America today….[This book] proves Alexie is a poet first and a fiction writer second."
--Ray Gonzalez, The Bloomsbury Review
"An impressive mosaic of emotions and subjects, deployed with wit, intelligence and haunting insights….Alexie's vision is Whitmanic in all his embracing love of humanity."
--Philadelphia Inquirer
