Praise
"[T]his captivating bildungsroman...elegantly mixes free-floating young adult cynicism with a charged idiosyncratic view of American history."
"[Sherman Alexie] has established an impressive literary reputation as a bold writer who goes straight for the aorta....And his most recent novel is no exception....Right up to the novel's final sentence, Mr. Alexie succeeds yet again with his ability to pierce to the heart of matters, leaving this reader with tears in her eyes."
"Raw and vital, often raucously funny, and there isn't a false word in it."
From the Publisher
Annotation After setting his mother's perverted boyfriend on fire and running away from his 20th foster home, "Zits," a half-Indian teenager, robs a bank and is shot to death. And that's when the fun begins in Sherman Alexie's scathing, wild, and surreal 10th novel. At the moment of his death, the acne-scarred Zits begins to time-travel, jumping (à la QUANTUM LEAP) into the lives of people throughout history, including a 1970s FBI agent, an Indian at the Battle of Little Big Horn, and an airplane pilot tutoring a terrorist-in-training. Using the scarred and sarcastic voice of a troubled adolescent as a guide to recent American history, Alexie creates a memorable and surprisingly affecting novel that works on both political and personal levels.
