Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A collection of in-depth interviews with Gerald Vizenor, one of the most powerful and provocative voices in the Native world today. These lively conversations with the pre-eminent novelist and cultural critic reveal much about the man, his literary creations, and his critical perspectives on important issues affecting Native peoples in the late 20th century. Readers gain crucial insights into the genesis of Vizenor's fiction and its imagery, characters and plots. The book also casts new light on his sometimes controversial ideas about contemporary Native identity, politics, economics, scholarship and literature. These conversations are particularly valuable for their clarification of concepts and terminology central to Vizenor's work.
