9780006547099: The Bingo Palace

A reissue of a much-loved classic, from one of America’s most celebrated novelists, winner of the prestigious National Book Award for Fiction in 2012.

Seeking direction and enlightenment, Lipsha Morrissey, a charismatic young drifter, answers his grandmother’s summons to return to his birthplace. As he tries to settle into a challenging new job on the reservation, he falls passionately in love for the first time. But the object of his desire, the beautiful Shawnee Ray, is in the midst of deciding whether to marry his boss, the wealthy reservation entrepreneur, Lyman Lamartine.

Matters are further complicated when Lipsha discovers that Lyman is his rival in more ways than one. In league with an influential group of aggressive businessmen, Lyman has chosen to open a gambling complex on reservation land – a development which threatens to destroy the community’s fundamental links with the past…

Review:

‘Louise Erdrich is the most interesting American novelist to have appeared in years.' Philip Roth

‘Erdrich’s prose has a compelling pulse to it. It is fluent and seductive, with the vigour and erotic potency of good rock music.’ Sunday Times

'Beautiful … ‘The Bingo Palace’ shows us a place where love, fate and chance are woven together like a braid.' New York Times

‘In its empathy, its poetry and its sheer narrative power, 'The Bingo Palace' confirms Erdrich as one of the greatest composers writing today.’ Independent on Sunday

'The power of Louise Erdrich's writing lies in the clear access she has to her characters' thoughts and feelings, and her ability to translate those feelings into words that are both poetic and unforced. ‘The Bingo Palace’ is a beautiful novel, mysterious and revelatory, from a powerful American voice.' Erica Wagner, The 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.
