Selected Works by Sherman Alexie
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian
Alexie’s semi-autobiographical novel, written in 2007. Like the main character of the book, Alexie grew up on the Spokane Reservation, was born with hydrocephalus, and attended high school in Reardan, outside of the reservation.
Two of the books featured here, Dangerous Astronomy and Seven Mourning Songs, are part of Penrose Library's special collections. Dangerous Astronomy was donated to the library by Lynne Vieth, retired Penrose librarian. All 35 copies of Seven Mourning Songs were printed at the Whitman College Book Arts Lab in 1994. More copies are available for viewing in the library archives.
