How to describe this book? It‘s a book about sentences (not just made of words), about dictionaries, about loads of books (will be going down a rabbit hole with those LISTS!). About ghosts, about confronting the past, about deciding to LIVE. It covers the pandemic, the murder of George Floyd, indigenous respect and ritual, love, loss, everything. I LOVED IT. Thank you, @Sapphire 😊 Your list gave me the push to finally read this ♥️

CBee Now for the tags! This counts for #aboutapandemic #booked2023 @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @alisiakae. It‘s my first #AAM read (thanks, @Soubhiville), AND from my #auldlangspine list, @monalyisha ♥️ (edited) 10h

I thought I should read an indigenous author for the US prompt for #ReadingtheAmericas2023 Erdrich is a Chippewa from Minneapolis and owns a bookstore. Our MC works in Louise‘s fictional bookstore and struggles with her own sense of self and with a ghost. The story takes place in the early days of the pandemic when we were all a bit haunted. The sentence of the title is both a grammatical language construct and a time of incarceration.

BarbaraBB Great choice! 2d
Librarybelle Great choice, indeed! 2d

I cackled so hard at this line from Tookie: “And think about what time does to your bosom,” I said in a prim voice. “By the time you‘re sixty they‘ll all look like The Scream.” @Sapphire #auldlangspine @monalyisha 😂😂😂😂

Read-y_Picker I've only read one of hers so far but the author seems to have a twisted sense of humour and I am here for it! I laughed so heard at some parts of 4d
CBee @Read-y_Picker this is my first Erdrich and I am seriously here for the humor. I‘m only about 30 pages in and have laughed so much already 😂 4d
Sapphire I own Roundhouse and the Night Watchman and need to get to those, but I think I want to read The Painted Drum next from Erdrich. 4d

I‘m watching a swat team in California searching a van after a mass shooting while reading about George Floyd and Philando Castile and hell if this country doesn‘t make me incredibly sad in so many ways.

HOTPock3tt I am only halfway through! But LOVING it so far!😍 @Soubhiville 5d
Lcsmcat Thanks for the tag. I‘ve got a previous commitment at 2, but y‘all have a lot to talk about! 5d
Kristin_Reads I loved this one… Erdrich was in the middle of writing this when the pandemic hit, and she chose to weave the events of the pandemic throughout the story. This made it even more interesting to me! Loved the MC. 5d
Julsmarshall I‘m sorry I won‘t be able to join the discussion but I loved this book so much! So compelling, unique and layered. Enjoy your discussion! 5d
Zuhkeeyah I already have something this afternoon. Sorry I won‘t be able to join the discussion. 5d

Mehso-so

I was a bit disappointed in this read. Maybe it is too soon for me to read #PandemicFiction or maybe this one is just not my style. I will read her other works and see how they are, but I just couldn‘t connect to the story very much. But I do enjoy the author‘s writing style. #AuthorAMonth #LouiseErdrich #January

tpixie I felt the same way. Loved the characters and their relationships, but the whole George Floyd, and pandemic storylines could have been left out. She seemed to tackle too many story lines in this book. 3d
