Not only is this an amazingly honest and interesting memoir of Alexie and his family and their life on the "Rez"; it is funny. You owe to yourself to listen to Sherman read it.

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!!

An achingly sad but beautifully written story of loss. Sherman Alexie has a complicated family and his relationship with his mother was perhaps the most complicated of all. This memoir is obviously an attempt to sort through the web of memories and emotions he experiences at her passing. I felt that at times it almost bordered on the self-indulgent but not quite. Alexie's craftsmanship with words and vulnerability made it a privilege to look into this window of his life.

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.
