“A thriller and love story. . . . A mediation on power and betrayal. . . . An exhilarating novel of risk, redemption and discovery.” — Los Angeles Times

In their only fully collaborative literary work, Michael Dorris and Louise Erdrich have written a gripping novel of history, suspense, recovery, and new beginnings. The Crown of Columbus chronicles the adventures of a pair of mismatched lovers—Vivian Twostar, a divorced, pregnant anthropologist, and Roger Williams, a consummate academic, epic poet, and bewildered father of Vivian’s baby—and their quest for the truth about Christopher Columbus and themselves.

When Vivian uncovers what is presumed to be the diary of Christopher Columbus, she and Roger are drawn into a journey from icy New Hampshire to the idyllic Caribbean in search of “the greatest treasure of Europe.” Lured by the wild promise of redeeming the past, they are plunged into a harrowing race against time and death that threatens—and finally changes—their lives.

Louise Erdrich is the author of fourteen novels as well as volumes of poetry, short stories, children''s books, and a memoir of early motherhood. Her novelThe Round Housewon the 2012 National Book Award. She lives in Minnesota, where she owns the bookstore Birchbark Books.
