About the Book

Set on a North Dakota reservation, Louise Erdrich's The Round House is a classic coming-of-age tale. The story starts in the spring of 1988, when mother of thirteen-year-old Joy is brutally raped and almost murdered in a sacred place. Joe Coutts who spends his time much like any other boy of his age is irrevocably transformed after the terrible incident. Joy roams his world in order to find a way to heal his mother and to assist her to return to the world of the living, but she shuts herself away in her bedroom and slips into an abyss of loneliness. While his father, who is a tribal judge tries hard to wrest justice from a situation that defies his efforts, but all in vain, Joy becomes upset and skeptic with the police inquiry and sets out with his trusted friends, Cappy, Zack, and Angus, to find the assailant.

This is a powerful human story that unearths our nation’s History of moral and judicial failure and digs deep into one person's darkest episode. National book award winning novel, The Round House by one of the most famous novelists of our time is a haunting and powerful novel that embraces tragedy, the comic and a tale of injustice that is, unfortunately, an ideal depiction of past beliefs versus current realities.
