National Book Award Winner

Louise Erdrich won the 2012 National Book Award for her novel, The Round House. It's really really good reading, and (beware) really really depressing. Set in Chippewa country, in 1988, it references events and characters in her earlier novel, The Plague of Doves. Likewise really really good, and really really depressing. We have both titles, and a good many of her other books, including her The Birchbark House series for middle-school readers (which some of us thought were boring, nothing like her dynamite work for adults; love to hear some other opinions on this...)

We have it in the library now.
