Publisher Comments:

Having survived World War I, Fidelis Waldvogel returns to his quiet German village and marries the pregnant widow of his best friend, killed in action. With a suitcase full of sausages and a master butcher's precious knife set, Fidelis sets out for America. In Argus, North Dakota, he builds a business, a home for his family—which includes Eva and four sons—and a singing club consisting of the best voices in town. When the Old World meets the New—in the person of Delphine Watzka—the great adventure of Fidelis's life begins. Delphine meets Eva and is enchanted. She meets Fidelis, and the ground trembles. These momentous encounters will determine the course of Delphine's life, and the trajectory of this brilliant novel.

What's the book that I keep recommending to friends again and again? What's the book that sends me off on a hunt to read everything the author has written? The Master Butchers Singing Club is it, and Louise Erdrich is the author. With characters that will stay with you long after you have finished reading, with scenes you remember vividly as if you saw them in a movie, this is the one book that you too will pass on to everyone. My neighbors thanked me, my friends thanked me, and I thank and admire Ms. Erdrich tremendously.

Incredible novel! Epic in its sweep, with fascinating characters, strong plot and delicious prose. My mom felt so strongly about the book that she bought it for me -- and she's a librarian who doesn't buy a lot of fiction! I can't wait to read more books by Louise Erdrich.
