Set on and around a North Dakota reservation, Love Medicine, the first novel by National Book Award-winning author Louise Erdrich is the epic story about the intertwined fates of two families: the Kashpaws and the Lamartines.

With astonishing virtuosity, each chapter draws on a range of voices to limn its tales. Black humor mingles with magic, injustice bleeds into betrayal, and through it all, bonds of love and family marry the elements into a tightly woven whole that pulses with the drama of life.

Filled with humor, magic, injustice and betrayal, Erdrich blends family love and loyalty in a stunning work of dramatic fiction, now available in this Harper Perennial Deluxe Modern Classic, featuring beautiful cover artwork on uncoated stock, French flaps, and deckle-edge pages.

I'm a new Louise Erdrich convert and I wish I would've read this gorgeous collection of short stories before some of her others (time for a re-read!) Erdrich is a lyrical, powerful, descriptive writer, and these stories all intertwine to create a picture of a particular Native American community. She draws upon this community in many of her other novels, and Love Medicine is a fantastic place to start!
