Sherman Alexie in Santa Fe

Sherman Alexie — or, Johnny Buckskin, as he decided his name would be if he was a stripper — was at Garcia Street Books this evening as a part of his book tour for Flight.

Heard him interviewed on this morning's Santa Fe Radio Café, and decided to change our plan to go to the outdoor concert jazz at St. John's to catch him speak. I've read Toughest Indian in the World and seen Smoke Signals, but I've also heard him interviewed plenty of times, and he is just amazing to hear — funny, acerbic, witty, opinionated, truthful.

And he did not disappoint this evening. Admitting he was on the 35th city of the book tour, he was a little punchy. And awfully entertaining.
