Sherman Alexie Talks About Why He's 'One of the Brown Folks for Clinton'

On May 10, the author of Reservation Blues and The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian publishes his first picture book, Thunder Boy Jr., about a Native American boy who wishes he had a different name.

TIME: What was your aim in writing this?

Alexie: There’s a real lack of Native Americans in contemporary picture books. I mean, there’s a lack of us in all genres, but I couldn’t find a picture book about a contemporary Native American family.
