Author Bio
Louise Erdrich
Erdrich's mother was Chippewa, her father German, and she was raised in North Dakota near the Chippewa reservation where her grandparents lived--a setting for much of her work. She attended Dartmouth, where she met the writer Michael Dorris, whom she married in 1981, and from whom she separated shortly before his suicide in 1997. Erdrich and Dorris collaborated on several of their fiction works. In her novels and short stories, Erdrich writes about her Native-American heritage, often transplanting characters from one book to another. Her dominant theme is the struggle to retain traditional Native-American values in the face of poverty, racism, and the pervasiveness of white culture.


"[Erdrich] often goes deepest when provoking laughter.... In many places, I laughed or gasped aloud at the gorgeous absurdity of [her] plot twists....Our mortal hearts need stories like these." - Helen W. Mallon 04/15/2009

"Not exactly realism, yet strangely realistic mythmaking." (Starred review.) 12/01/2008

"[A] master tuner of the taut emotions that keen between parent and child, man and woman, brother and sister, man and beast..." - Liesl Schillinger 01/04/2009

"Louise Erdrich is an immensely satisfying storyteller who molds her novels from the clay of her short fiction...This anthology returns 30 of those stories, which eventually became parts of 11 novels, to their original, unentangled forms. The book also includes six other stories, some of which are being published for the first time." - Carolyn Kellogg 01/06/2009
