Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Sherman Alexie

Biography & Memoir • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Sherman Alexie narrates his powerful memoir with acute emotion and vulnerability. His story of his grief after the death of his mother is rooted in the brutal experiences of Native Americans in the United States. He has composed a repeating patchwork of stories inspired by his family, life on and off the reservation, and poems born of his visceral reaction to his loss. Alexie's mother, Lillian, was among the last four speakers of their tribal language, and he mourns the loss of her and her knowledge while simultaneously struggling with their shared history of abuse, neglect, and resentment. Alexie's narration is extremely personal. He will make you cry, yes, and then make you laugh hard enough to wake your sleeping children; be warned. E.E.C.
