Born an Ojibwa Indian, Erdich tells her tales with poetry, longing and vision. Her characters 'are scattered like beads off a necklace and put back together in new patterns, new strings. In them you see the depth of spirit life.'

Humm - I liked this book - I just didn't love it . Reminded me of "Tales of Burning Love" ( had a very "desparate" quality to it ). Regardless , LE is still the best fiction writer in the U.S. today

I loved this novel which is both magical and realistic. It is the first time I've read anything from Louise Erdrich. I really appreciate her style, they way she combines myth and reality. A very thought provoking read! I am looking forward to reading more books from her!

This is the second of Erdrich's books I've read, and almost as good as the first. Interesting stories, interesting characters, very well written and excruciatingly funny in places.
