The Round House

The Round House is by Louise Erdrich. A touching tale of a young native American boy coming of age after the violent rape of his mother. The effect the attack has on his parents, family, and community is extremely moving, as the arrest and prosecution of the offender are complicated by jurisdictional issues. Some have called this work the Native American To Kill a Mockingbird, I would concur.

Ratings: Adult - 9 out of 10 - P (profanity) - V (violence) - AC (mature thematic content).
