The revered author returns to the territory of her bestselling, Pulitzer Prize finalist The Plague of Doves with this riveting, 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. An indelible portrait of family and memory, injustice and vengeance, friendship and growing up, Louise Erdrich’s remarkable novel illuminates the harsh realities of a community where Ojibwe and white live uneasily together. Written with undeniable urgency, blending tragedy, the comic, and a spirit world very much present in its all-too-human characters’ lives, The Round House is a masterpiece of literary fiction from one of the most distinguished writers of our time.
