Louise Erdrich's National Book Award-winning THE ROUND HOUSE introduces readers to Geraldine Coutt, the victim of a recent attack who is reluctant to relive or reveal to anyone what happened. She will not leave her bed and slips into an abyss of solitude. Her son, Joe, becomes frustrated with the official investigation and sets out with his trusted friends to get some answers of his own. Their quest takes them first to the Round House, a sacred space and place of worship for the Ojibwe. And this is only the beginning.

Jasper Fforde, author of The Woman Who Died A Lot: A Thursday Next Novel

The Bookworld’s leading enforcement officer, Thursday Next, has been forced into a semiretirement following an assassination attempt, returning home to recuperate. But with Goliath attempting to replace Thursday at every opportunity with synthetic Thursdays, and a call from the Bookworld to hunt down Pagerunners who have jumped into the Realworld, her convalescence is going to be anything but restful.
