In this stunning and timely novel, Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning author Louise Erdrich creates a wickedly funny ghost story, a tale of passion, of a complex marriage and of a woman's relentless errors.

Louise Erdrich's latest novel, The Sentence, asks what we owe to the living, the dead, to the reader and to the book. A small independent bookstore in Minneapolis is haunted from November 2019 to November 2020 by the store's most annoying customer. Flora dies on All Souls' Day, but she simply won't leave the store. Tookie, who has landed a job selling books after years of incarceration that she survived by reading 'with murderous attention,' must solve the mystery of this haunting while at the same time trying to understand all that occurs in Minneapolis during a year of grief, astonishment, isolation and furious reckoning.

The Sentence begins on All Souls' Day 2019 and ends on All Souls' Day 2020. Its mystery and proliferating ghost stories during this one year propel a narrative as rich, emotional and profound as anything Louise Erdrich has written.

 
 

Review

Louise Erdrich is the rarest kind of writer, as compassionate as she is sharp-sighted -- Anne Tyler

A novel that reckons with ghosts - of both specific people but also the shadows resulting from America's violent, dark habits - Kirkus (starred review)

Scintillating . . . More than a gripping ghost story, The Sentence offers profound insights into the effects of the global pandemic and the collateral damage of systemic racism. It adds up to one of Erdrich's most . . . illuminating works to date - Publishers Weekly (Starred review)

Erdrich is one of the greatest living American writers - Guardian

The poet laureate of the contemporary Native American experience - Mail on Sunday

No one can break your heart and fill it with light all in the same book - sometimes in the same paragraph - quite like Louise Erdrich - Tampa Bay Times

Book Description

From Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning author Louise Erdrich comes a richly layered novel that explores identity, exploitation, and how the burdens of history still shape our lives today.
