Being a Sherman Alexie Fan, wanted to introduce his writings to my son. Sherman has recently published his first book for young adults, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. Ordered thru Amazon and my son liked it very much. I recommended him to read the inimitable Medicine River by Thomas King, he said he did not get most of it, but True Diary is the correct introduction.
After he had finished reading it (multiple times), I read it in my slow and distracted pace, wonderful writing and poignant indeed.
Check it out.
