Heartbreaking, funny, and beautifully written, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian chronicles the contemporary adolescence of one Native American boy as he attempts to break away from the life he was destined to live.

"Funny, tragic and uplifting (some of the time)"
Sherman Alexie's unforgettable reading of his own semi autobiographical history is a treat. A hard look at a culture he felt he had to escape to succeed, the book is full of insight into the mind of a boy and the mind of someone who finds himself trying the almost impossible task of spanning two worlds. I can't believe that there have been attempts in the US to remove this book from schools and libraries. Everyone will learn something good from this book.
