“One can only marvel...at Erdrich’s amazing ability to do what so few
of us can—shape words into phrases and sentences of incomparable beauty
that, then, pour forth a mesmerizing story.”
of the most revered novelists of our time—a brilliant chronicler of
Native-American life—Louise Erdrich returns to the territory of her
bestselling, Pulitzer Prize finalist The Plague of Doves
with The Round House
transporting readers to the Ojibwe reservation in North Dakota. It is
an exquisitely told story of a boy on the cusp of manhood who seeks
justice and understanding in the wake of a terrible crime that upends
and forever transforms his family. Riveting and suspenseful, arguably
the most accessible novel to date from the creator of Love Medicine
, The Beet Queen
, and The Bingo Palace
, Erdrich’s The Round House
is a page-turning masterpiece of literary fiction—at once a powerful
coming-of-age story, a mystery, and a tender, moving novel of family,
history, and culture.
