Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A remarkable first novel that stares more boldly at many of the truths of Native American life in the country than any fiction I’ve read.”
Chicago Sun-Times

“A powerful piece of work….Louise Erdrich is the rarest kind of writer; as compassionate as she is sharp-sighted”
—Anne Tyler

“A masterpiece, written with spellbinding authenticity.”
—Philip Roth

“The beauty of Love Medicine saves us from being completely devastated by its power.”
—Toni Morrison

Love Medicine is Louise Erdrich’s masterful debut novel, one of the most influential, beloved, and distinguished works of contemporary fiction. It is the unforgettable saga of two families and how their destinies intertwine over the course of fifty years on and around a North Dakota reservation. Here is the book that heralded the arrival of a major voice in American literature.

Synopsis:

Set on and around a North Dakota reservation, Love Medicine, the first novel by 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, now available in this Harper Perennial Deluxe Modern Classic, featuring beautiful cover artwork on uncoated stock, French flaps, and deckle-edge pages.
