In The Sentence, Louise Erdrich creates a wickedly funny ghost story, a tale of passion, of a complex marriage and of a woman’s relentless errors.

A small independent bookshop in Minneapolis is haunted from November 2019 to November 2020 by its most annoying customer. Flora dies on All Souls’ Day and she simply won’t leave the shop. Tookie, who has landed a job selling books after years of incarceration, 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, isolation and furious reckoning.

‘Erdrich is one of the greatest living American writers’ Guardian

‘Strange, enchanting and funny: a work about motherhood, doom, regret and the magic – dark, benevolent and every shade in between – of words on paper’ New York Times
