Ten top books by indigenous authors

At LitHub, Emily Temple tagged ten top books by indigenous authors, including:
Sherman Alexie, Blasphemy: New and Selected Stories

Sherman Alexie is extraordinarily prolific, and his abilities range from poetry to short stories to YA to literary novels—really, you can reach blindly into the Alexie bag, because almost everything by him is great. You’re probably already familiar with The Absolutely True Story of a Part-Time Indian—and if you haven’t read it, it’s likely already been recommended to you, and if it hasn’t, well, read that one too—so let’s settle on another, his recent collection Blasphemy. This book concludes with my all-time favorite story of his, “What You Pawn I Will Redeem.” Even if you don’t read anything else from this list, read this. Trust me.
