The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

Written by Sherman Alexie

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian Synopsis

An all-new edition of the tragicomic smash hit which stormed the New York Times bestseller charts, now featuring an introduction from Markus Zusak. In his first book for young adults, Sherman Alexie tells the story of Junior, a budding cartoonist who leaves his school on the Spokane Indian Reservation to attend an all-white high school. This heartbreaking, funny, and beautifully written tale, featuring poignant drawings that reflect the character's art, is based on the author's own experiences. It chronicles contemporary adolescence as seen through the eyes of one Native American boy. 'Excellent in every way' Neil Gaiman Illustrated in a contemporary cartoon style by Ellen Forney.

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian Press Reviews

A gem of a book . . . may be Sherman Alexie's best work yet * New York Times * It's humane, authentic and, most of all, it speaks * Guardian * Funny, frank and engaging * Evening Standard * A remarkable tale that is sure to resonate and lift spirits of all ages to come * USA Today * Emotionally spring-loaded, linguistically gymnastic and devastatingly funny * San Francisco Bay Guardian *
