Flight: [a novel]
From the New York Times bestselling author of multiple award-winning books comes this 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, young Zits 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 nineteenth-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 has 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.
