Honest, sad, happy, sarcastic and painful. A full-time fan of Alexie, this memoir reveals the man behind the novels and poetry and makes his writing and impact even more meaningful.
Gut-wrenching, funny, tragic, revelatory, poetic, moving memoir of Alexie's youth, relationship with his family - especially his mother, grief and his identity as a First Nation's man and author. Beautifully read by the author. A not-to-be-missed audiobook!!
Sherman Alexie ranks near the top on my list of fav authors. I've read all his prose and seen him speak/perform live many times. And yet, so much of this memoir was a shocking surprise. It is horrible to imagine the depth of pain experienced by so many in a similar cultural milieu. I marvel at his resilience, insight and self awareness. He observed that he's funniest when afraid, and yet he has made public speaking a part of his professional life.
