AN HOUR WITH SHERMAN ALEXIE
Such an incredible interview with Native American poet and writer Sherman Alexie. I caught part of this program on NPR last Saturday and I was so glad to find the full hour-long program online.
Amongst such topics as what life is like for him as a writer and the use of language in poetry, I love how Sherman talks about living in a “post-memory” world, where things are created too quickly to create memory. He also mentions that there aren’t as many big ideas in the world today, compared with the rate and effects of big ideas in the past.
It’s an insightful hour with the writer and I doubt you’ll walk away from it feeling anything less than enriched.
