Congratulations to Louise Erdrich for winning the National Book
Award for Fiction with her novel The Round House. The National Book Awards ceremony
was held last night a few blocks away from our New York office. The complete list of winners and finalists can
be found here.
Last year, Bloomsbury published a collection of stellar
critical essays by noted scholars on Louise Erdrich as a part of our Bloomsbury Studies
in Contemporary North American Fiction series.
Louise Erdrich: Tracks, The Last Report on the Miracles at
Little No Horse, The Plague of Doves luminates Erdrich’s multiperspectival
representation of Native American culture and history. Focusing on such topics
as humor, religion, ethnicity, gender, race, sexuality, trauma, history, and
narrative form, the essays collected here offer fresh readings of Erdrich’s
explorations of Native American identities through her innovative fictions.
Next up in the series is Toni Morrisson: Paradise, Love, A Mercy coming quite soon in the UK and January in the US!
