The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

CRITICS HAVE SAID

  • Characters in Mr. Alexie’s work are not the usual kind of Indians…They are not tragic victims or noble savages…they listen to Jimi Hendrix and Hank Williams; they dream of being basketball stars…And unlike most Indians in fiction, they are sometimes funny.
    –The New York Times
  • His talent is immense and genuine…Sherman Alexie is one of the best writers we have.
    –The Nation
  • Hilarious but poignant…dead-on accurate with regard to modern Indian life.
    –Publishers Weekly
