In The Night Watchman, a new novel based on the extraordinary life of her grandfather, National Book Award-winning author Louise Erdrich explores themes of love and death with gravity, depth of feeling, sly humor, and elegant prose. Thomas Wazhashk is the factory night watchman who carried the fight against Native dispossession from rural North Dakota all the way to Washington, DC. Fellow Chippewa and plant worker Pixie Paranteau is saving every penny to support her mother and brother; she makes a fateful trip to Minnesota to search for her sister, Vera, who has disappeared. Erdrich's memorable characters grapple with the worst and best impulses of human nature.
