Contemporary Short Fiction by Native American Women

Edited by Hertha D. Sweet Wong, Lauren Stuart Muller, and Jana Sequoya Magdaleno

Unlike most anthologies that present a single story from many writers, this volume offers an in-depth sampling of two or three stories by a select number of both famous and emergent Native women writers. Here you will find much-loved stories (many made easily accessible for the first time) and vibrant new stories by such well-known contemporary Native American writers as Paula Gunn Allen, Louise Erdrich, Joy Harjo, Linda Hogan, and Leslie Marmon Silko as well as the fresh voices of emergent writers such as Reid Gómez and Beth Piatote. These stories celebrate Native American life and provide readers with essential insight into this vibrant culture.
