Sherman Alexie's six favorite books about identity

Sherman Alexie is the award-winning author of The Absolutely True Story of a Part-Time Indian and other books. His first picture book, Thunder Boy Jr., has just been published by Little, Brown.

Among his six favorite reads "about exploring your origins and seeing yourself clearly," as shared at The Week magazine:
Bird Box by Josh Malerman

This is the scariest novel I have read in years and years. Its monsters can only see you if you open your eyes, so our heroes must keep theirs closed at all times. The book begins with an escape down a garden path that leads into a haunted house — and then our heroes continue their escape by taking a sightless journey down a river by raft. A highly original horror novel.
