Nella riserva di indiani ojibwe, le famiglie di due sorelle si preparano ai festeggiamenti natalizi, quando una tragedia si abbatte su di loro: un giorno, andando a caccia di un cervo di cui ha seguito le tracce per tutta l’estate, il cognato di Peter, Landreaux, vede finalmente sbucare da un bosco la sua preda, spara, ma quando si avvicina scopre di aver ucciso non l’animale ma Dusty, suo nipote. L’uccisione del bambino getta nella disperazione i genitori e pone l’altra coppia davanti a un dilemma: secondo le antiche tradizioni indiane, chi priva una famiglia di un figlio può riparare affidandole un ragazzo equivalente. Chi meglio del figlio dell’assassino potrà alleviare in qualche modo il dolore di Peter e Nola? LaRose viene quindi “ceduto” agli zii, nella speranza che questo valga anche a placare ogni sentimento di vendetta.

Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in Fiction Finalist for the 2017 PEN Faulkner Award In this literary masterwork, Louise Erdrich, the bestselling author of the National Book Award-winning The Round House and the Pulitzer Prize nominee The Plague of Doves wields her breathtaking narrative magic in an emotionally haunting contemporary tale of a tragic accident, a demand for justice, and a profound act of atonement with ancient roots in Native American culture. North Dakota, late summer, 1999. Landreaux Iron stalks a deer along the edge of the property bordering his own. He shoots with easy confidence—but when the buck springs away, Landreaux realizes he’s hit something else, a blur he saw as he squeezed the trigger. When he staggers closer, he realizes he has killed his neighbor’s five-year-old son, Dusty Ravich. The youngest child of his friend and neighbor, Peter Ravich, Dusty was best friends with Landreaux’s five-year-old son, LaRose. The two families have always been close, sharing food, clothing, and rides into town; their children played together despite going to different schools; and Landreaux’s wife, Emmaline, is half sister to Dusty’s mother, Nola. Horrified at what he’s done, the recovered alcoholic turns to an Ojibwe tribe tradition—the sweat lodge—for guidance, and finds a way forward. Following an ancient means of retribution, he and Emmaline will give LaRose to the grieving Peter and Nola. “Our son will be your son now,” they tell them. LaRose is quickly absorbed into his new family. Plagued by thoughts of suicide, Nola dotes on him, keeping her darkness at bay. His fierce, rebellious new “sister,” Maggie, welcomes him as a coconspirator who can ease her volatile mother’s terrifying moods. Gradually he’s allowed shared visits with his birth family, whose sorrow mirrors the Raviches’ own. As the years pass, LaRose becomes the linchpin linking the Irons and the Raviches, and eventually their mutual pain begins to heal. But when a vengeful man with a long-standing grudge against Landreaux begins raising trouble, hurling accusations of a cover-up the day Dusty died, he threatens the tenuous peace that has kept these two fragile families whole. Inspiring and affecting, LaRose is a powerful exploration of loss, justice, and the reparation of the human heart, and an unforgettable, dazzling tour de force from one of America’s most distinguished literary masters.

Dakota du Nord, 1999. Un vent glacial souffle sur la plaine et le ciel, d'un gris acier, recouvre les champs nus d'un linceul. Ici, des coutumes immémoriales marquent le passage des saisons, et c'est la chasse au cerf qui annonce l'entrée dans l'automne. Landreaux Iron, un Indien Ojibwé, est impatient d'honorer la tradition. Sûr de son coup, il vise et tire. Et tandis que l'animal continue de courir sous ses yeux, un enfant s'effondre. Dusty, le fils de son ami et voisin Peter Ravich, avait cinq ans. Ainsi débute le nouveau roman de Louise Erdrich, couronné par le National Book Critics Circle Award, qui vient clore de façon magistrale le cycle initié avec La Malédiction des colombes et Dans le silence du vent. L'auteur continue d'y explorer le poids du passé, de l'héritage culturel, et la notion de justice. Car pour réparer son geste, Landreaux choisira d'observer une ancienne coutume en vertu de laquelle il doit donner LaRose, son plus jeune fils, aux parents en deuil. Une terrible décision dont Louise Erdrich, mêlant passé et présent, imagine avec brio les multiples conséquences. " Un récit puissamment évocateur, d'une subtilité et d'une grâce magistrales.

LaRose by Louise Erdrich | Summary & Analysis Preview: LaRose by Louise Erdrich is a novel about two little boys who are torn from their families and the infinite sorrow that’s left in their wake of their separations. As the repercussions of a tragic hunting accident unfold on a North Dakota reservation from 1999 to 2003, the narrative intermittently reaches back in time as far as 1839 to explore stories from the families’ Ojibwe heritage. Almost two hundred years’ worth of Ojibwe culture, American history, and family drama are brought to bear on the unusual situation of LaRose Iron, a five-year-old who handles an impossible situation with wisdom and grace. The central narrative starts off with a bang: Landreaux Iron, a skilled hunter, has shot his neighbors’ son. When five-year-old Dusty Ravich fell from his hiding place in a tree, he took a bullet that was meant for a deer. Landreaux is officially absolved of any wrongdoing; the shooting was… PLEASE NOTE: This is summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.
