Some books in a writer's oeuvre are like beacons. Louise Erdrich has shone such lights before, but in a prolific career – this is her fifteenth novel – LaRose is perhaps her brightest. A story of traditional justice, vengeance, and healing, LaRose is also a cohesive weaving of intergenerational stories that links back to the beginning of a writing career spanning more than thirty years.
