    about teenage boys touching their pee-pees that's so upsetting to these folks.

    I use a lot of Alexie's works in my classes (at community colleges). He is wickedly subversive, hilariously honest, and über-erudite in a refreshingly accessible way.

    I hadn't yet picked up a copy of Part-Time Indian, but be pleased to know that your post here is what prompted me to finally do so.

    Even a cursory glance at the illustrations tells me my sneaking suspicion is spot-on: for a populace that's in denial and hoping to stay that way, there's some downright scary stuff in there!
