The Master Butchers Singing Club (Harper Collins)
For the first time, Louise Erdrich writes about the European side of her heritage. Her new novel is about the confrontation of German and Native American cultures in North Dakota between World Wars. For Erdrich, of course, this is a meeting of the different visions of life and different spiritual goals that shape her imaginary small town's culture.
