When his mother passed away at the age of seventy-eight, Sherman Alexie responded the only way he knew how: he wrote. Featuring seventy-eight poems and seventy-eight essays, Alexie shares raw, angry, funny, profane, tender memories of a childhood few can imagine--growing up dirt-poor on an Indian reservation, one of four children raised by alcoholic parents. Throughout, a portrait emerges of his mother as a beautiful, mercurial, abusive, intelligent, complicated woman.

Gut-wrenching, funny, tragic, revelatory, poetic, moving memoir of Alexie's youth, relationship with his family - especially his mother, grief and his identity as a First Nation's man and author. Beautifully read by the author. A not-to-be-missed audiobook!!

Sherman Alexie ranks near the top on my list of fav authors. I've read all his prose and seen him speak/perform live many times. And yet, so much of this memoir was a shocking surprise. It is horrible to imagine the depth of pain experienced by so many in a similar cultural milieu. I marvel at his resilience, insight and self awareness. He observed that he's funniest when afraid, and yet he has made public speaking a part of his professional life.
