I listened to Sherman Alexie's Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian, which is also a memoir about a self destructive alcoholic family. I guess I'm stuck in a bit of rut in that regard. If you want to listen to something in this genre I recommend Alexie's book.
The author is a professional comedian, so he does a great job reading it.
It has some funny parts. Probably the best part is at the end where he talks about his daughter.
It seems often that comedians are really serious underneath and this book is mostly about serious self analysis. And so it is unfortunately boring. There are very few jokes, but there are a few funny stories. I wish he had more of his stand up in it to break it up. I was mostly bored and probably wouldn't have made it through except that I had a six hour flight and nothing else to listen to.
This was a really, really funny book and nobody could read it better than the author. It is also really sad and is a good listen for anyone who would like to know more about reservation life. I heartily recommend it and I think it is one of the best memoirs I've ever read, or I guess, listened to.
Maybe the rules for fighting.
