Alexie soars with originality as he takes us on a crazy road trip with Coyote Springs, a Native American rock band from the Spokane Indian Reservation. The poignant humour and pathos of modern Indian life are brilliantly evoked -- and the characters are wild, woolly and wonderful.

Thomas Builds-the-Fire is back! My favorite Alexie character ever forms an R&B band with Victor Joseph and another Spokane Indian in this book. This follows the band’s career, delving into the pasts and families of the band members. As I’ve come to expect from Alexie, it is by turns hilarious and tragic, with vivid gritty characters and scenes. A very satisfying read.
