Louise Erdrich’s Novel ‘The Round House’ Wins National Book Award

Louise Erdrich’s Novel ‘The Round House’ Wins National Book Award | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

" Beating out an unusually competitive field, Louise Erdrich won the National Book Award for fiction on Wednesday night for “The Round House,” a novel about a teenage boy’s effort to investigate an attack on his mother on a North Dakota reservation, and his struggle to come to terms with the violence in their culture. 

 

Ms. Erdrich accepted the award in part in her Native American language. She said she wanted to acknowledge “the grace and endurance of native women.” "

You can find Birchbark Books in a tiny strip of stores in a leafy neighborhood, along with Bockley Gallery, which often exhibits Native artists."

Book Review: The Round House, by Louise Erdrich

Book Review: The Round House, by Louise Erdrich | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"In Erdrich's new novel The Round House, justice isn't simple. When an Ojibwe woman gets assaulted, the tribal judge must answer difficult questions: Was the assailant white or Native? Did the attack take place on tribal land? Further complicating matters, the judge is married to the victim, and their 13-year-old son, Joe, who narrates with all the raw emotion and crude humor of a real teenager, wants to settle matters himself. It's a gripping mystery with a moral twist: Revenge might be the harshest punishment, but only for the victims. A-"
