The Absolute True Of A Part-Time Indian

Satisfactory Essays

“Finishing a good book is like leaving a good friend” author William Feathers would acknowledge and I have realized that I've lost a valuable friend after perusing The Absolute True of a Part-Time Indian. Sherman Alexie’s novel is a journey through the mind of a writer as he attempts to chronicle his daily life. This autobiographical depiction of life on a reservation is bleak but hopeful yet also heartrending and uplifting. This novel discusses about Arnold Spirit or Junior, a member of the Spokane Indian Tribe, that decides to attend a school filled with white kids. As Junior struggles to create a scintillating future for himself he finds himself impacted by racism and depression but the hardships he faces aren't enough to make him lose hope.
