‘Louise Erdrich is the most interesting American novelist to have appeared in years.' Philip Roth
‘Erdrich’s prose has a compelling pulse to it. It is fluent and seductive, with the vigour and erotic potency of good rock music.’ Sunday Times
'Beautiful … ‘The Bingo Palace’ shows us a place where love, fate and chance are woven together like a braid.' New York Times
‘In its empathy, its poetry and its sheer narrative power, 'The Bingo Palace' confirms Erdrich as one of the greatest composers writing today.’ Independent on Sunday
'The power of Louise Erdrich's writing lies in the clear access she has to her characters' thoughts and feelings, and her ability to translate those feelings into words that are both poetic and unforced. ‘The Bingo Palace’ is a beautiful novel, mysterious and revelatory, from a powerful American voice.' Erica Wagner, The Times
