The Stranger

First Nations journalist and essayist Terese Marie Mailhot is out with her debut memoir, Heart Berries, which is about growing up on the Seabird Island Indian Reservation in British Columbia. The coming-of-age story follows Mailhot from her "profoundly dysfunctional upbringing" to her struggle with PTSD and bipolar disorder, and ultimately to the writing life she's cultivated in response to all that. Sherman Alexie regularly champions her work in radio interviews and in conversations, so she's got his stamp of approval. I imagine she'll have many others when this one hits the shelves. RS
