Sobre l'autor

Karen Louise Erdrich was born on June 7, 1954 in Little Falls, Minnesota. Erdrich grew up in Wahpeton, North Dakota, where both of her parents were employed by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. She is a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa. Erdrich graduated from Dartmouth College in 1976 mostra'n més with an AB degree, and she received a Master of Arts in creative writing from Johns Hopkins University in 1979. Erdrich published a number of poems and short stories from 1978 to 1982. In 1981 she married author and anthropologist Michael Dorris, and together they published The World's Greatest Fisherman, which won the Nelson Algren Award in 1982. In 1984 she won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Love Medicine, which is an expansion of a story that she had co-written with Dorris. Love Medicine was also awarded the Virginia McCormick Scully Prize (1984), the Sue Kaufman Prize (1985) and the Los Angeles Times Award for best novel (1985). In addition to her prose, Erdrich has written several volumes of poetry, a textbook, children's books, and short stories and essays for popular magazines. She has been the recipient of numerous awards for professional excellence, including the National Magazine Fiction Award in 1983 and a first-prize O. Henry Award in 1987. Erdrich has also received the Pushcart Prize in Poetry, the Western Literacy Association Award, the 1999 World Fantasy Award, and the Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction in 2006. In 2007 she refused to accept an honorary doctorate from the University of North Dakota in protest of its use of the "Fighting Sioux" name and logo. Erdrich's novel The Round House made the New York Times bestseller list in 2013. Her other New York Times bestsellers include Future Home of the Living God (2017).

A quirky, enjoyable journey with haunted bookseller Tookie and her colleagues and family. The last third set against the backdrop of the pandemic. The impact on ordinary lives by an extraordinary event. But then several extraordinary events happen to these characters.

For the love of a woman, Tookie agrees to steal a body, only to find she's been set up, as there are drugs under the man's armpits. She takes the fall and goes to jail for some years, then gets out ten years later and starts working at Birchbark Books. When she becomes haunted by the ghost of one of their regulars and then the COVID-19 pandemic hits, George Floyd is murdered, and Tookie finds herself grappling with past and present in her personal life.

This is a bit of a departure from the other books I've read by Louise Erdrich. It's set in Minneapolis instead of the reservation, it's current rather than historical (as it was published in 2021, and the events happen in 2019-20, it's about as contemporary as you can get). Birchbark Books is the name of the independent bookstore Louise Erdrich owns, and the author herself makes a fictional appearance in the book. The book started out very funny and almost easygoing to me, but once the pandemic hits at about the halfway point, the tone gets darker and more intense. It doesn't shy away from the feelings of isolation and confusion we all experienced early in the pandemic, when we all weren't sure how the virus spread and were just figuring things out day to day. This is probably one of the best fictional representations, written in the moment, that I've seen of what it was like to live through 2020. Tookie's own journey to deal with the ghost in the bookstore and her own past make the stakes personal, and the ending is extremely satisfying. Highly recommended.… (més)

Audio from the Library. Thomas is a tribal elder and also the night watchman at a factory on the reservation in Turtle Mountain, North Dakota. Congress has come up with a bill to terminate federal rights and the treaty for this tribe, so they can be assimilated into American society. It's really a white land grab.
