A powerfully involving novel from one of America's finest writers, and winner of America's prestigious National Book Award for Fiction 2012 Sister Cecilia lives for music, for those hours when she can play her beloved Chopin on the piano. It isn't that she neglects her other duties, rather it is the playing itself - distilled of longing - that disturbs her sisters. The very air of the convent thickens with the passion of her music, and the young girl is asked to leave. And so it is that Sister Cecilia appears before Berndt Vogel on his farm, destitute, looking for sanctuary. Decades later, old Father Damien lays down his pen and dresses for bed. Slowly, he removes his heavy robes, undergarments and, at last, a bandage wound tightly around woman's breasts. Having lived for so long as a man, he fears that the discovery of his true identity will undo all that he has accomplished...Moving and lyrical, 'The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse' is a powerful work from one of contemporary literature's brightest stars.

5.0 The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse: A Novel
Last Report really opens up and blurs the boundaries on what it means to be good and evil, man and woman, saint and priest, and Christian and Ojibwe. What makes a saint? Piety? Miracles? It is beautiful, stunning, profound, horrifying, and funny. Louise Erdrich's best.
