Louise Erdrich: The Sentence

In conversation with Natalie Diaz

Nov 11, 2021


Louise Erdrich, who won the 2021 Pulitzer Prize for The Night Watchman, now publishes The Sentence, a wickedly funny ghost story that asks what we owe to the living and to the dead, to the reader and to the book. Beginning on All Soul’s Day 2019 and ending on All Soul’s Day 2020, the novel grapples with all that occurs in Minneapolis during a year of grief, astonishment, isolation, and furious reckoning.

“Louise Erdrich is my favorite writer,” writes Ann Patchett. “No one is better at creating an entire world and all the people who live there, past, present and future.”
