First Indian on the Moon: Poems.
by Alexie, Sherman.

Publisher Information:
Hanging Loose Press, Brooklyn: 1993.

A Fine tight copy without dust jacket as issued. This is one of only 500 Hardcover copies issued. Working from a carefully developed understanding of his place in an oppressed culture, he focuses on the need to tear down obstacles before nature tears them down. Fire is therefore a central metaphor: a sister and brother-in-law killed, a burnt hand, cars aflame. Tongue in cheek, Alexie inserts images from popular songs and movies, and catalogues aspects of traditional reservation life that have been sacrificed in America's melting pot. Alexie renews the nearly forgotten sense of language equaling power. And the language in these sequential works is flawless, each section picking up from and expanding upon the previous one, poetry and prose working naturally together.
