    Born poor and hydrocephalic, Arnold Spirit survives brain surgery. But his enormous skull, lopsided eyes, profound stuttering, and frequent seizures target him for abuse on his Indian reservation. Protected by a formidable friend, the book-loving artist survives childhood. And then - convinced his future lies off the rez - the bright 14-year-old enrolls in an all-white high school 22 miles away.

    FanB14 says: "Absolutely Entertaining Memoir"
    "Pleasantly surprised and highly entertained!"

    If you could sum up The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian in three words, what would they be?

    Honest, rough, clever


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian?

    His description of the rematch home basketball game with his old tribal high school. It was so well written I was there with them on the basketball court and I've never played basketball before!

    No I haven't. This was my first.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Kid without a chance makes his chances
