As a 41-year-old man confronts his own mortality in this collection's title story, he recalls his Spokane Indian father's chilling death from alcoholism and diabetes. Another tale features an eccentric salesman pursuing a married woman from airport to airport. And then there's the film editor who sees nothing wrong with altering footage to fit preconceived views - until he becomes the target of media distortion.

Excellent story telling, both subject and narration
I have read several of Sherman Alexie's books now, half by audio book. I think i may have first heard about his work after seeing the movie Smoke Signals--still a favorite of mine. Even in his full length stories he tells his stories in vignettes, chapters or woven together short stories. I liked this short story collection, each as mesmerizing as the one before. Cannot beat Sherman's voice either.
