Bless his cotton socks, Sherman Alexie rocked The Nation last Tuesday. As staunch as ever in his ideals, Alexie took on the digitalization of books in a manner which out-Colberted Colbert. He ran that interview with grace and humor, going so far as to get the last word.
Alexie, whose recent is War Dances and much acclaimed, says that while he will adapt his art somewhat to get when he can out of technology, he will not allow his books into digital format.
I don’t know that I will adopt Alexie’s stance , mostly because I haven’t published any books.
