Sherman Alexie has been hailed as â€śone of the best writers we haveâ€ť (The Nation). Reservation Blues is his â€śirresistibly stunning debut novelâ€ť (San Francisco Chronicle). One day legendary bluesman Robert Johnson appears on the Spokane Indian reservation, in flight from the devil and presumed long dead. When he passes his enchanted instrument to Thomas-Builds-the-Fireâ€”storyteller, misfit, and musicianâ€”a magical odyssey begins that will take them from reservation bars to small-town taverns, from the cement trails of Seattle to the concrete canyons of Manhattan. This is a fresh, luxuriantly comic tale of power, tragedy, and redemption among contemporary Native Americans.
