The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America by Thomas King, University of Minnesota Press, 288 pages

A runaway bestseller in Canada, The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America has yet to catch on in the United States. Author Thomas King, widely known up north for his writings on First Nations and for his provocative political humor as host of the CBC Radio series The Dead Dog Café Hour, has packed in all the polemics of Dee Brown’s Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee and delivered it with the nonstop rollicking black humor that would be the envy of Sherman Alexie or the late Vine Deloria.
