Louise Erdrich: LaRose, Part II

Hosted by  • 

In part two of this conversation about LaRoseLouise Erdrich's novel about an act of restorative justice that tests the boundaries between two families – the discussion explores the non-linear form the novel moves in towards seeking balance and resolution. In addition to having a sort of zig-zag storytelling path, the book's characters appear to be composed of opposites, all trying to find their new normal after the tragic accident. Despite the upheaval, one thing is certain: vengeance does not work.
