From "The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in heaven":

"Junior," she says, "Don't you think your stories are too sad?"
...
"What do you mean?" I ask.
...
"Well," she says. "Ain't nobody cries that much, you know?"
...
"I guess," I say. "But ain't nobody laughs as much as the people in my stories, either."
...
"You know what you should do? You should write a story about something good, a real good story."
"Why?"
"Because people should know that good things always happen to Indians, too."
"Okay," I say. "If you want to hear a good story, you have to listen."
...

I haven't read Sherman Alexie but if this is anything to go by I would be very interested in doing so. Has something of the simplicity and clarity of a haiku about it.

Hello, Alex!

It is nice to see another person from Europe (from the same time zone) here.
