Off the Reservation
Sherman Alexie, one of America’s up and coming literary phenoms, will be reading tonight at the Warehouse Theater (1017 7th Street NW ). Admission is $5 plus the purchase of his excellent new book Flight ($13).
Alexie presents a potent and entertaining new voice in modern literature. His latest work of fiction Flight is a deceptively short read but packs a powerful punch in its meditations on the cyclic nature of violence throughout history and its ramifications on the personal decisions we make in the current global political climate. The book is also a terrific adolescent coming-of-age tale told with a mind-bending time travel angle. I found the book vastly entertaining and extremely thought provoking.
Check out Mr. Alexie’s reading tonight at 7 pm.
