In The Bingo Palace, Erdrich tells the story of two families, the Proux and the Bingos, that are intertwined by marriage. The Bingos are a wealthy family, while the Proux are not as fortunate. The Bingos disapprove of the Proux because of their lack of money, but the Proux are friends with the Bingos' son, Jean-Baptiste. When Jean-Baptiste is hurt in a car accident, the Bingos take care of him and help him to recover. Jean-Baptiste begins to see the Bingos as his new family and begins to love them. Meanwhile, the Proux are struggling to make ends meet. They are able to help Jean-Baptiste when the Bingos can't, and the Bingos begin to love the Proux in return. The Bingo Palace is a story about the power of friendship, family, and love.; 8vo.
