Editorial review

prone to be dubbed the native American To okayill a Mockingbird, Louise Erdrich’s moving, advanced, and unusually uplifting new novel tells of a boy’s coming of age in the wake of a brutal, racist attack on his mom. Drawn from real-lifestyles statistics about racially inspired attacks on our usa’s reservations, this tale is forceful however never preachy, thanks in large part to Erdrich’s understated however wonderful prose and her obvious belief in the redemptive power of storytelling. --Sara Nelson
