Highly readable memoir about the pain of being Sherman Alexie, born poor, hydrocephalic, with a host of other health problems and two alcoholic parents, although his mother sobered up during his childhood and remained so for the rest of her life. Besides being a brilliant writer, Alexie is an extremely complex and conflicted man, and this comes out in spades in this engrossing and apparently candid volume.
