The writer Sherman Alexie is probably known for his humor and, of course, for his writing about life as an Native American Indian. He has some wonderful books and stories, both humorous and difficult.

Here is a clip of Alexie being interviewed by Stephen Colbert. It is quite humorous, and well worth watching.
