9780006546207: The Beet Queen

A beautifully repackaged reissue of the magical novel from Louise Erdrich, winner of America’s prestigious National Book Award for Fiction in 2012.

On a cold spring morning in 1932, two children, Karl and Mary Adare, leap from a boxcar. Orphaned in a most peculiar way, Karl and Mary have come to Argus, in the heart of rural North Dakota, to seek refuge with their aunt Fritzie.

So begins an exhilarating tale, spanning some forty years and brimming with unforgettable characters: ordinary Mary, who causes a miracle; seductive, restless Karl, who lacks his sister's gift for survival; Celestine James, Mary's life-long friend; and Celestine's fearless, wild daughter Dot – the Beet Queen.

Review:

'A perfect – and perfectly wonderful – novel.' Anne Tyler

'Violent, passionate, surprising … ‘The Beet Queen’ imparts its freshness of vision like an electric shock.' Angela Carter

'She is a writer of formidable strength and imagination, and she presents the fruits of both in a prose of flexible, haunting beauty.' Bernard Levin, Sunday Times

'A remarkable and luminous novel.' New York Times

About the Author:

Louise Erdrich is one of the most gifted, prolific, and challenging of American novelists. Her fiction reflects aspects of her mixed heritage: German through her father, and French and Ojibwa through her mother. She is the author of many novels, the first of which, Love Medicine, won the National Book Critics Circle Award and the last of which, The Round House, won the National Book Award for Fiction in 2012. She lives in Minnesota.
