Excellent writing and beautiful story. Erdrich reads the audiobook herself, which I enjoyed. I failed to realize before reading it that covid is part of the plot and I am not (and may never be) ready to read anything about the covid pandemic.
This one felt very different than the other two I‘ve read by her (The Round House, The Night Watchman) although still unmistakably Erdrich. Somehow this one was slower-paced and more diffuse. I still enjoyed it although it wasn‘t quite what I expected - and I still wouldn‘t really know how to describe it if someone asked for a recommendation. #authoramonth
