Louise Erdrich, the highly acclaimed author of novels, poetry, short stories, children's books, and a memoir, has won the National Book Critics Circle Award and has been a finalist for both the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize. We are thrilled to welcome her to Bookshop in celebration of her new novel, The Round House.
Louise Erdrich’s fine, tender, and candid new novel is told through 13-year-old Joe, who lives on an Ojibwe reservation in North Dakota. When his mother is brutally attacked, Joe tries to seek his own justice in an adult world of flawed bureaucracy and broken systems. He begins to collect the old stories that have been handed down, stories that inform his understanding about what happened to his mother, and the novel reads as part mystery, part spiritual quest. He is a boy on the cusp of history, of grief and anger and forgiveness, and of a culture that is woven into him. This is a book you won’t want to miss.
“A stunning and devastating tale of hate crimes and vengeance…Erdrich covers a vast spectrum of history, cruel loss, and bracing realizations. A preeminent tale in an essential American saga.” --Booklist, starred review
