"In her stunning and timely new novel, Pulitzer Prize and National Book award-winning author Louise Erdrich creates a wickedly funny ghost story: a tale of passion, of a complex marriage, and of a womans relentless errors. Louise Erdrichs latest novel, The Sentence, asks what we owe to the living, to the dead, to the reader, and to the book. A small independent bookstore in Minneapolis is haunted from November 2019 to November 2020 by the stores most annoying customer. Flora dies on All Souls Day, but she simply wont leave the store. Tookie, who has landed a job selling books after years of incarceration that she survived by reading zwith murderous attention,y must solve the mystery of this haunting while at the same time trying to understand all that occurs in Minneapolis during a year of grief, astonishment, isolation, and furious reckoning. The Sentence begins on All Souls Day 2019 and ends on All Souls Day 2020. Its mystery and proliferating ghost stories during this one year propel a narrative as rich, emotional, and profound as anything Loui9se Erdrich has written."
