Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in Fiction Finalist for the 2017 PEN Faulkner Award In this literary masterwork, Louise Erdrich, the bestselling author of the National Book Award-winning The Round House and the Pulitzer Prize nominee The Plague of Doves wields her breathtaking narrative magic in an emotionally haunting contemporary tale of a tragic accident, a demand for justice, and a profound act of atonement with ancient roots in Native American culture. North Dakota, late summer, 1999. Landreaux Iron stalks a deer along the edge of the property bordering his own. He shoots with easy confidence—but when the buck springs away, Landreaux realizes he’s hit something else, a blur he saw as he squeezed the trigger. When he staggers closer, he realizes he has killed his neighbor’s five-year-old son, Dusty Ravich. The youngest child of his friend and neighbor, Peter Ravich, Dusty was best friends with Landreaux’s five-year-old son, LaRose. The two families have always been close, sharing food, clothing, and rides into town; their children played together despite going to different schools; and Landreaux’s wife, Emmaline, is half sister to Dusty’s mother, Nola. Horrified at what he’s done, the recovered alcoholic turns to an Ojibwe tribe tradition—the sweat lodge—for guidance, and finds a way forward. Following an ancient means of retribution, he and Emmaline will give LaRose to the grieving Peter and Nola. “Our son will be your son now,” they tell them. LaRose is quickly absorbed into his new family. Plagued by thoughts of suicide, Nola dotes on him, keeping her darkness at bay. His fierce, rebellious new “sister,” Maggie, welcomes him as a coconspirator who can ease her volatile mother’s terrifying moods. Gradually he’s allowed shared visits with his birth family, whose sorrow mirrors the Raviches’ own. As the years pass, LaRose becomes the linchpin linking the Irons and the Raviches, and eventually their mutual pain begins to heal. But when a vengeful man with a long-standing grudge against Landreaux begins raising trouble, hurling accusations of a cover-up the day Dusty died, he threatens the tenuous peace that has kept these two fragile families whole. Inspiring and affecting, LaRose is a powerful exploration of loss, justice, and the reparation of the human heart, and an unforgettable, dazzling tour de force from one of America’s most distinguished literary masters.
LaRose by Louise Erdrich | Summary & Analysis Preview: LaRose by Louise Erdrich is a novel about two little boys who are torn from their families and the infinite sorrow that’s left in their wake of their separations. As the repercussions of a tragic hunting accident unfold on a North Dakota reservation from 1999 to 2003, the narrative intermittently reaches back in time as far as 1839 to explore stories from the families’ Ojibwe heritage. Almost two hundred years’ worth of Ojibwe culture, American history, and family drama are brought to bear on the unusual situation of LaRose Iron, a five-year-old who handles an impossible situation with wisdom and grace. The central narrative starts off with a bang: Landreaux Iron, a skilled hunter, has shot his neighbors’ son. When five-year-old Dusty Ravich fell from his hiding place in a tree, he took a bullet that was meant for a deer. Landreaux is officially absolved of any wrongdoing; the shooting was… PLEASE NOTE: This is summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

All of us have or will have struggles in our lives that end up causing scars we could never have imagined would happen. I needed to trigger a positive outcome from my possibly fatal larger-than-life injury. I absolutely had to find a way to make sense of it. That is what compelled me to capture it and then write about my experience. That desire was to help others as well as myself. By telling you what I went through “in detail,” this story places me in a very vulnerable position. Yet, I am willing to subject myself to that knowing it could possibly benefit others. Throughout parts of this memoir, I needed to take my life back from the grips of death, and you will see how family, faith, and laughter helped me to do that.

Arthur Cecil Gask (1869-1951), dentist and novelist. He began writing crime fiction while waiting for his patients and in 1921 paid for the publication of his first novel, The Secret of the Sandhills, which was an immediate success. Over a period of forty years Gask wrote over thirty books as well as contributing short stories to The Mail in Adelaide. Most of his novels described the activities of a detective, Gilbert Larose, in solving crimes. Gask's work was translated into several European languages, serialised in newspapers and broadcast on radio. He also wrote short stories. H. G. Wells, an admirer of Gask's work, corresponded with Gask. Wells regarded The Vengeance of Larose (1939) as Gask's "best piece of story-telling...It kept me up till half-past one." Bertrand Russell, also an admiring reader, called to see Gask at Gask's home in Walkerville, an Adelaide suburb, when he was in Adelaide in August 1950.

After years of living a beige existence, Cat Larose, international color marketing expert, finally added a little color to her own life. All it took was a Paris sunset and a little red suitcase.
