Love Medicine (Harper Perennial Deluxe Editions)


Book Overview: Love Medicine (Harper Perennial Deluxe Editions)

Set on a North Dakota Ojibwe reservation, Love Medicine--the first novel from master storyteller and National Book Award-winning author Louise Erdrich--is an epic story about the intertwined fates of two families: the Kashpaws and the Lamartines.

"The beauty of Love Medicine saves us from being completely devastated by its power." -- Toni Morrison

With astonishing virtuosity, each chapter of this stunning novel draws on a range of voices to limn its tales. Black humor mingles with magic, injustice bleeds into betrayal, and through it all, bonds of love and family marry the elements into a tightly woven whole that pulses with the drama of life.

Erdrich has written a multigenerational portrait of strong men and women caught in an unforgettable whirlwind of anger, desire, and the healing power that is love medicine.

This beautifully designed Harper Perennial Deluxe Edition of Love Medicine features French flaps and deckle-edge pages, the perfect gift book for fans of Louise Erdrich.
