The Absolutely True Diary Of A Part-time Indian

The Absolutely True Diary Of A Part-time Indian, by Sherman Alexie. Quick read, with illustrations sprinkled throughout. It's about what it means to belong, and what it means to be ostracized for trying to break out. (It's a frequently banned book, which mostly just adds to its allure.)

Flight, By Sherman Alexie

Sherman Alexie Books | time-travelling teenager traces the Native American experience

Reservation Blues by Sherman Alexie. My advice to anyone who is thinking about reading Alexie is to ignore the critiques and form your own opinions. A dramatic read.

The movie Smoke Signals was weak, and didn't capture what makes this slim book of short stories by Sherman Alexie so great. His two novels were not so good, but these stories are wonderful
