THE BUSINESS OF FANCYDANCING is writer/director Sherman Alexie's first film since his 1998 smash success Smoke Signals, which he wrote. A ceremony of poetry, song, dance, humor, grief and memory, THE BUSINESS OF FANCYDANCING is the story of one man's art and life, and the messy collision between the two.
WHAT I'VE STOLEN, WHAT I'VE EARNED (Hanging Loose Press, 2013) is Sherman Alexie's 24th book. His first, THE BUSINESS OF FANCYDANCING, was published in 1992. He has won the National Book Award, an NEA Writing Fellowship, the PEN/Hemingway Award and many other honors and has been praised widely for his poetry, fiction, screenplays and inimitable personal appearances. An enrolled Spokane/Coeur d'Alene Indian, he lives in Seattle with his wife and two sons.
