In honor of Native American Heritage month and Thanksgiving - let's read "The Round House" by Louise Erdrich, which won the National Book Award for fiction.
(This novel will be available in paperback in September and you can pre-order a paperback now.)
One of the most revered novelists of our time—a brilliant chronicler of Native-American life—Louise Erdrich returns us to the Indian territory from her bestselling, Pulitzer Prize finalist book "The Plague of Doves", transporting readers again to the Ojibwe Reservation in North Dakota in "The Round House".
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, 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.
