The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian Storia Teaching Guide | Book Summary Arnold, aka Junior, introduces his hardscrabble life on the Spokane Indian reservation in the first chapter called The Black-Eye-of-the-Month Club. Through his “absolutely true” diary, Arnold describes his impediments and vulnerabilities, the biggest of which is living on a reservation where he is a zero with a zero future. A pivotal conversation with a teacher spurs Arnold to make a daring life choice—to attend an all-white school miles from the reservation.

His rocky start there, riddled with stereotypes and misunderstandings, slowly develops into surprising friendships and successes in academics and basketball. Meanwhile, his family life is shattered by deaths, poverty, and alcoholism. Through it all, Arnold survives with a new confidence in himself and hope for the future. Heartbreaking, funny, and beautifully written, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is based on Sherman Alexie’s own experiences growing up on the reservation.

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian - Engelsk - NDLA. Sherman Alexie, the author of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, grew up on the Spokane Indian Reservation in Wellpinit, in the state of Washington. Sherman Alexie In the novel we meet Arnold Spirit Jr., a fourteen-year-old Indian.

The character is partly based on Alexie’s own experiences. Arnold or Junior as he is often called, is the reservation outcast – an outsider – and he is routinely bullied and beaten up. His parents are alcoholics and the family poor. At times, poverty is just terrible and thus Arnold sometimes wishes that he could draw "a fist full of twenty dollar bills, and perform some magic trick and make them real". Arnold, like Sherman Alexie, makes a choice to leave the reservation and attend the white school 22 miles away in Reardan. Considered a traitor, Arnold is caught between two worlds: his home on the reservation and the white high school he attends.
