Louise Erdrich (Author)
Available

Description

Set on and around a North Dakota Ojibwe reservation, Love Medicine--the first novel by bestselling, National Book Award-winning author Louise Erdrich--is the epic story about the intertwined fates of two families: the Kashpaws and the Lamartines.

With astonishing virtuosity, each chapter draws on a range of voices to limn its tales. Black humor mingles with magic, injustice bleeds into betrayal, and through it all, bonds of love and family marry the elements into a tightly woven whole that pulses with the drama of life.

Filled with humor, magic, injustice and betrayal, Erdrich blends family love and loyalty in a stunning work of dramatic fiction
