Flight: A Novel

Alexie, Sherman Author

9780802170378: Flight: A Novel

The best-selling author of multiple award-winning books returns with his first novel in ten years, a powerful, fast and timely story of a troubled foster teenager — a boy who is not a “legal” Indian because he was never claimed by his father — who learns the true meaning of terror. About to commit a devastating act, the young man finds himself shot back through time on a shocking sojourn through moments of violence in American history. He resurfaces in the form of an FBI agent during the civil rights era, inhabits the body of an Indian child during the battle at Little Big Horn, and then rides with an Indian tracker in the 19th Century before materializing as an airline pilot jetting through the skies today. When finally, blessedly, our young warrior comes to rest again in his own contemporary body, he is mightily transformed by all he’s seen. This is Sherman Alexie at his most brilliant — making us laugh while breaking our hearts. Simultaneously wrenching and deeply humorous, wholly contemporary yet steeped in American history, Flight is irrepressible, fearless, and again, groundbreaking Alexie.

About the Author:

Sherman Alexie is the author of Reservation Blues, Indian Killer, The Toughest Indian in the World, and Ten Little Indians. He wrote and directed The Business of Fancy-dancing and also wrote the award-winning screenplay for Smoke Signals, a film based on his short-story collection The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven. He has been nominated for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award and has won the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction and the American Book Award.

From AudioFile:

Fifteen-year-old "Zits" has outlasted foster home after foster home. Few notice him, let alone care about him. Then Zits finds himself with several guns in his pockets and a choice to make. But at the exact moment of decision, he is thrust into another dimension and travels back in time. Adam Beach's narration is spot-on for a back-talking, unsure, acerbic, wounded teen trying to learn about hate and love. His narration stays attuned to the pace, quickening or slowing with Zits's various encounters. Beach isn't as adept with voices for the people whom Zits meets along the way, but it's the main character's travels and point of view that matter. It's a moving, gripping, engaging, and funny journey, one worth taking to see how a troubled teen ends up. M.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
