A mother is brutally raped by a man on their North Dakota reservation where she lives with her husband and thirteen-year-old son, Joe. Traumatized and afraid, she takes to her bed and refuses to talk to anyone - including the police. While her husband, a tribal judge, endeavours to wrest justice from a situation that defies his keenest efforts, young Joe's world shifts on its child's axis. Confused, and nursing a complicated fury, Joe sets out to find answers that might put his mother's attacker behind bars - and make everything right again. Or so he hopes. The Round House is a poignant and abundantly humane story of a young boy pitched prematurely into an unjust adult world. It is a story of vivid survival; and tt confirms Louise Erdrich as one of America's most distinctive contemporary novelists.

Join the adventure of four curious boys as they dare to visit a suspected haunted house. "So far our night had been uneventful and now we were at the pinnacle of our quest. If there was nothing up here, there was nothing to find and our adventure would be over. There would be no story to tell and we had risked getting into big trouble to come up empty handed. Still, as I stood there at the top of the stairs, I couldn't shake the feeling that there was something in the cold darkness of that house: a presence beyond that of four curious boys. Maybe it was a sensation left over from the previous occupants, or my imagination running wild." "I've been waiting a long time to get this story finished. I believe it will be appealing to adults and youth. This is only the beginning of the Questors' adventures." -Louis Paul DeGrado

Accountant, virgin, large-bottomed man of unusual drabness, Edmund Crowe wants nothing more than to fit in. Trouble is, nothing feels right. Least of all the Roundhouse: Mecca to Camden's undesirables. Assigned the job of balancing the Roundhouse's books - and thereby ensure its demise - Edmund is advised to keep his purpose there a secret. But then Barney appears on the scene: Barney the lothario, the fine-handed gypsy, and hitherto the undisputed king of the Roundhouse. Before long, Edmund and Barney are fighting it out for the affections of an ice-cream coquette called Lia. Sex, drugs, rock'n roll and mutant rats swiftly follow as Edmund's life changes in previously unimaginable ways. Charting the progress of Barney, Lia and Crowe, from the orgiastic, mind-bending '70s to the social-climbing, emotionally-famished '90s; from crumbling cityscape to lavish country retreat, Kings of the Roundhouse is a brilliantly twisted darkly comic novel about love, friendship, men, money, and the life-transforming power of lightning strikes.

The wealth of excavation in Cyprus conducted across a period of nearly a century and a half has revealed much evidence of ancient building of all functional categories. This picture extends over a vast range of time (ca. 10,000 years) since Cyprus is probably the place where the earliest substantial building known, the Neolithic round house style is better presented than anywhere else in the world. It is the aim of this book to set forth and document the building tradition which hitherto has received no detailed exposition. The book will fill several gaps in the library shelves at one and the same time: architectural history that presents all the archaeological evidence.
