Over de Auteur

Sherman J. Alexie Jr. was born on October 7, 1966. His mother was Spokane Indian and his father was Coeur d'Alene Indian. Alexie grew up on the Spokane Indian Reservation in Wellpinit, Washington. He decided to attend high school off the reservation where he knew he would get a better education. He toon meer was the only Indian at the school, and excelled academically as well as in sports. After high school, he attended Gonzaga University for two years before transferring to Washington State University, where he graduated with a degree in American studies. He received the Washington State Arts Commission Poetry Fellowship in 1991 and the National Endowment for the Arts Poetry Fellowship in 1992. His collections of poetry included The Business of Fancydancing, First Indian on the Moon, The Summer of Black Widows, One Stick Song, and Face. His first collection of short stories, The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven, received a PEN/Hemingway Award for Best First Book of Fiction and a Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Writers' Award. His other short story collections included The Toughest Indian in the World, Ten Little Indians, and War Dances. His first novel, Reservation Blues, received the Before Columbus Foundation's American Book Award and the Murray Morgan Prize. His other novels included Indian Killer, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, and Flight. He won the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction in 2018 for You Don't Have to Say You Love Me: A Memoir. Alexie and Jim Boyd, a Colville Indian, collaborated on the album Reservation Blues, which contains the songs from the book of the same name. In 1997, Alexie collaborated with Chris Eyre, a Cheyenne/Arapaho Indian, on a film project inspired by Alexie's work, This is What it Means to Say Phoenix, Arizona, from the short story collection The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven.

Besprekingen

Een prachtig, grappig en ontroerend boek.

Junior groeit op in een indianen-reservaat, waar de meeste inwoners alcoholist zijn. Om dit treurig lot te ontlopen besluit Junior dat hij naar een school buiten het reservaat gaat.

Dit boek had een Zilveren Zoen moeten krijgen!
Helaas worden er dit jaar geen Zoenen uitgedeeld, zodat dit juweeltje niet bekroond zal worden. Ik zal het in elk geval op mijn verlang-lijstje met bekroonde boeken zetten.

Wat een enorme humor heeft de auteur. Zo droog. Daarnaast heeft hij een enorme drive om wat van zijn leven te maken.
Ik heb dikwijls zitten grinneken bij dit boek en tegelijk is het ook een beetje een treurig boek, echter door de humor blijft het luchtig!
