TUESDAY, MAY 27, 2003

"The two funniest tribes I've ever been around are Indians and Jews," Sherman Alexie writes in "Ten Little Indians," his new collection of short stories, "so I guess that says something about the inherent humor of genocide."

According to Janet Maslin of The New York Times, the "warm, revealing, invitingly roundabout stories" feature a broad range of Indian characters who "come in all shapes and sizes, sharing only their wry perspective on Indian life off the reservation." Most of the stories are set in Seattle, Washington, which Alexie calls home these days.
