The #9 Bestselling Audiobook of 2017: You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me by Sherman Alexie

The #9 bestselling audiobook of 2017 across independent bookstores, is a searing, deeply moving memoir by critically acclaimed author Sherman Alexie. Narrated by the author, You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me explores the powerful themes of family, love, loss, and forgiveness through Alexie’s complicated relationship with his mother Lillian Alexie.


It should come as no surprise that one of the most anticipated books of the year, written by one of the most well-known PNW writers is a staff pick. I was intrigued from the moment I saw the cover, which showcases a beautiful picture of Alexie’s mother, Lillian, and older sister, Mary,  that itself relates to the legacy of beautiful resilience and casual brutality explored throughout the text, but I did not expect it to touch me so deeply.  I listened to the audio version read by Sherman Alexie himself, and his emotion, whether he is using his “urban Indian” voice or the rez accent of family and friends, is evident and packs a punch.  As an adult orphan, mother, sister, teacher, activist, and minority who is often “the only one” and who has anger on behalf of and fear for my people and our country, this book broke my heart in places and healed it in others.  Everyone should read this book.  Everyone.

—Lydia, King’s Books, Tacoma, WA
