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.
