THE SUMMER OF BLACK WIDOWS
In 1992, Hanging Loose Press introduced the poetry
of Sherman Alexie. His first collection, The Business of Fancydancing,
was selected as a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. "Mr.
Alexie's is one of the major lyric voices of our time," wrote reviewer
James R. Kincaid. Since then, Alexie's poems, stories and novels
have brought him many honors and an international following of readers.
A Spokane/Coeur d'Alene Indian, now living in
Seattle, Alexie covers a territory that starts with the minute details
of reservation life and reaches out to encompass the world in all
its variety. The Summer of Black Widows presents poetry which shows
Mr. Alexie's work continues to grow in power, complexity and vision.
