The Night Watchman, by Louise Erdrich
Louise Erdrich, whose many books address her Native American heritage, just came out with a new book, The Night Watchman. It interweaves two basic narratives, one of a night watchman, who is also chair of his tribe's Advisory Council, trying to prevent the US Government from closing their reservation and stealing their land in the 1950s, and the other of a young girl trying to find her lost sister. The same themes of poverty, violence, and alcoholism run rife through the book.
