We went to see Sherman Alexie last night, reading from his new book: Ten Little Indians. He read for almost an hour. The story was called something like “Looking for a Witness” and the highpoints were fantastic, some parts hilarious, some challenging — fiction about 9/11. But it dragged in some parts and lost me. He did a long Q&A too. I’ve seen him read at least 5 times and judging by last night he’s softened around the edges — and I mean that in the best possible way.
