Read from August 02 to 15, 2011

A great work of fiction leaves me wanting more. Fortunately "Love Medicine" is the first in a series of novels about the tangled lives of several Objibwe families who live on a reservation in Minnesota in the 20th century. Erdrich brings her characters to life with authenticity and grit and develops the chapters so well that each could stand alone as a short story.
