Traumatized and afraid, she takes to her bed and refuses to talk to anyone – including the police.While her husband, a tribal judge, endeavours to wrest justice from a situation that defies his keenest efforts, young Joe’s world shifts on its child’s axis. Confused, and nursing a complicated fury, Joe sets out to find answers that might put his mother’s attacker behind bars – and make everything right again. Or so he hopes.The Round House is a poignant and abundantly humane story of a young boy pitched prematurely into an unjust adult world. It is a story of vivid survival; and tt confirms Louise Erdrich as one of America’s most distinctive contemporary novelists.
