Love Medicine makes me weak in the literary knees.
Buried beneath my bank and loan statements is my secondhand paperback copy of Love Medicine by Louise Erdrich. I fell in love with this book. I had been reading a lot of Amy Tan a few months ago. Enamored with her, I followed her on Twitter. Ms. Tan retweeted a post from the Paris Review featuring an interview with Louise Erdrich, I clicked and by end I was fascinated with Ms. Erdrich. One online trail led to another and I purchased my first Louise Erdrich novel from Amazon. I still get a dreamy look in my eyes when I think of this book. I can't promise you will, but it's worth trying.
What I love about this book is the poetic writing, intricate connections, simplicity and related contradictions of human nature and the fact that I cannot explain what it is I understand and relate to within this book. It gives me feelings. It tugs at my emotions, but doesn't leave my brain to rot.
