Each new Erdrich novel adds new layers of pathos and comedy, earthiness and spiritual questing, to her priceless multigenerational drama. This is one of her best -- concentrated, suspenseful, and morally profound. Filled with stunning language that recalls shades of Faulkner, Garcia Marquez and Toni Morrison, Louise Erdrich embraces tragedy, the comic, a spirit world very much present in the lives of her all-too-human characters, and a tale of injustice that is, unfortunately, an authentic reflection of what happens in our own world today.
