Critical Praise

"Erdrich seems to be inhabiting her characters, so intense and viscerally rendered are her portrayals...This novel will be remembered for a cornucopia of set pieces, all bizarre and stunning...Erdrich has done justice to the complexities of existence in general and Native American life in particular. "

Publishers Weekly

" Spellbinding….While displaying the lyrical grace of Love Medicine, her first and best novel, The Last Report is angrier, more ambitious, full of ‘madness, the stars, sin, and death.' But what surpassing pleasures spring from its wild, dark vision. "
