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
