Read in November, 2008

Read a few years ago, listened to the CD set also, read by Alexie himself. It was a treat.

My sister in law grew up with Sherman Alexie in eastern Washington, and can attest to the truth to some of the harder parts of this story. It is fiction, but from what my sis in law says, it hits really close to home.

I thought this was hilarious and heartbreaking at the same time. Even within one sentence, you'll laugh and cry.

A quick read I would recommend to just about anyone 15+.
