From award-winning New York Times bestselling author Louise Erdrich comes this novel of spiritual death, lyrical prose, and wild hope: a striking, luminous chapter in Erdrich's Ojibwe saga.
At the crossroads of his life, Lipsha Morrissey is summoned by his grandmother to return to the reservation. There, he falls in love for the very first time--with the beautiful Shawnee Ray, who's already considering a marriage proposal from Lipsha's wealthy entrepreneurial boss, Lyman Lamartine. But when all efforts to win Shawnee's affections go hopelessly awry, Lipsha seeks out his great-grandmother for a magical solution to his romantic dilemma--on sacred ground where a federally sanctioned bingo palace is slated for construction.
Louise Erdrich's luminous novel The Bingo Palace is a tale of spiritual death and reawakening; of money, desperate love, and wild hope; and of the enduring power of cherished dreams.
"Wonderful...hopeful, wrenching, funny, sexy, intense, and penetratingly true."--Los Angeles Times Book Review
