An achingly sad but beautifully written story of loss. Sherman Alexie has a complicated family and his relationship with his mother was perhaps the most complicated of all. This memoir is obviously an attempt to sort through the web of memories and emotions he experiences at her passing. I felt that at times it almost bordered on the self-indulgent but not quite. Alexie's craftsmanship with words and vulnerability made it a privilege to look into this window of his life.
