Publisher Comments:

The stunning first novel in Louise Erdrich's Native American series, Love Medicine tells the story of two families — the Kashpaws and the Lamartines. Written in Erdrich's uniquely poetic, powerful style, it is a multigenerational portrait of strong men and women caught in an unforgettable drama of anger, desire, and the healing power that is love medicine.

This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.

Review:

"A dazzling series of family portraits....This novel is simply about the power of love." Chicago Tribune

Review:

"The beauty of Love Medicine is the work of a tough, loving mind." Toni Morrison

Review:

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

I read Love Medicine while in college, and I was immediately drawn in to the world Erdrich has created. Erdrich makes the reader feel as if we know the characters personally -- and even helps us see some of our own characteristics in them. I read the rest of the books in the series straight through, hungrily wanting more information about the lives and emotions of these interesting people.
