The protaganist of Louise Erdrich's new novel, Joe Coutts, was 13 years old when his mother was brutally raped on their Native American reservation. "The Round House," centers around Joe's story, and how he searches for justice, while trapped between tribal laws and his desire for revenge. New York Times bestselling author Louise Erdrich joins us to discuss the novel, the second book in a planned trilogy that began with the 2009 Pulitzer Prize finalist "The Plague of Doves."

Host: Michael Krasny
