Reviews

"[David Treuer] is mounting a challenge to the whole idea of Indian identity as depicted by both Native and white writers." --The New York Times

"Treuer. . . executes a searing examination of such beloved authors as Louise Erdrich and Sherman Alexie. His conclusion: 'Native American Fiction does not exist.' " --The Washington Post Book World

"Treuer asks that novels by Native Americans be afforded their status as literature, not cultural artifacts, an argument bound to impact Native American literature programs." --Library Journal

"His challenge to his readers is to judge Native American writers by the literary quality of their effort, their originality, and the power of their language, not by their origins or by any attempt to discover authenticity." --Magill's Literary Annual
