Abstract

Anglo writer Tom Spanbauer’s The Man Who Fell in Love with the Moon (1991) and American-Indian author Sherman Alexie’s Reservation Blues (1995) illustrate how contemporary multicultural literature uses Jim Crow figures as reference points for sorting intricate social lines among other ethnic groups. Spanbauer also illustrates the related dangers of cross-ethnic pilfering.
