The Round House won the National Book Award for fiction.
One of the most revered novelists of our timeâa brilliant chronicler of Native-American lifeâLouise Erdrich returns to the territory of her bestselling, Pulitzer Prize finalist The Plague of Doves with The Round House, transporting readers to the Ojibwe reservation in North Dakota. It is an 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.
Riveting and suspenseful, arguably the most accessible novel to date from the creator of Love Medicine, The Beet Queen, and The Bingo Palace, Erdrichâs The Round House is a page-turning masterpiece of literary fictionâat once a powerful coming-of-age story, a mystery, and a tender, moving novel of family, history, and culture.
