9780007212279: Four Souls

A stunning novel that explores the things that can complicate revenge - like falling for the man you hate - from the winner of the National Book Award for Fiction 2012 Seeking revenge on the lumber baron who has stripped her reservation, Fleur Pillager takes her mother's name, Four Souls, for strength and walks from her Ojibwe reservation to the cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul. But revenge is never simple, and she quickly finds her intentions complicated by her own dangerous compassion for the man who wronged her. The two narrators of 'Four Souls' are from utterly different worlds. Nanapush, a 'smart man and a fool', is both Fleur's saviour and her conscience. Elderly, he would like to face death with his love Margaret beside him. Instead, the two find themselves battling out their last years. When Nanapush's childhood nemesis appears and casts his eye toward Margaret, Nanapush acts out an absurd revenge of his own. The other narrator, Polly Elizabeth Gheen, is a hanger-on in a wealthy Minneapolis family, a woman aware of her precarious hold on those around her. To her own great surprise the entrance of Fleur Pillager into her household and her life effects a transformation she could never have predicted.

About the Author:

Louise Erdrich is one of the most gifted, prolific, and challenging of American novelists. Her fiction reflects aspects of her mixed heritage: German through her father, and French and Ojibwa through her mother. She is the author of many novels, the first of which, "Love Medicine", won the National Book Critics Circle Award and the last of which, "The Round House", won the National Book Award for Fiction in 2012. She lives in Minnesota.

From AudioFile:

[Editor's Note: This is a combined review with TRACKS.]--Life is simple, life is complex--sometimes at the same time. These novels are set in the early twentieth century, a time of important transition for the members of the Ojibwe tribe as more tribal lands are lost and additional assimilation into white culture occurs. Many of the same characters appear in both works. In TRACKS the setting is the Ojibwe reservation in North Dakota; in FOUR SOULS the setting is Minneapolis/Saint Paul, where the characters seek to avenge those who have cheated them out of land and timber. Anna Fields narrates both books with sensitivity. She distinguishes clearly between the various narrative voices and is comfortable with the Ojibwe words sprinkled throughout.
