Staff Pick! So says…

Blessings upon Daunt Books for republishing this gem (selfishly, because I lent my National Geographic original to someone who never returned it, argh). Louise Erdrich is a firm Burley Fisher fave (and Nobel Prize bet). If we sold you her incredible lockdown novel The Sentence, you’ll love this non-fiction iteration of Erdrich the bookseller and writer of place and community (and if you haven’t read her fiction, this travel memoir is a great place to get to know her work). With her 18 month old daughter, Erdrich canoes islands that are living libraries, pictographic records of stories, dreams and myth, linking this long, long tradition of writing to her own. A gorgeous book to get lost in, for armchair or other travellers.
