I love Sherman Alexie - but I didn't love "Flight" that much. The theme is very important - what leads people to act out in violence and how does one come to understand the potential each of us has to hurt others and to step away from doing so. But the story is not the least bit sophisticated and goes after the theme in such an obvious and clumsy way that there is never any mystery where the story is going or how it will end up. The jacket cover description of this story says that it is "hilarious and tragic..." - I would say it is tragic but I didn't find anything hilarious about it.
