From the Publisher:
Three decades of short fiction by one of the most innovative and exciting writers of our day
In Louise Erdrich's fictional world, the mystical can emerge from the everyday, the comic can turn suddenly tragic, and violence and splendor inhabit a single emotional landscape. The fantastic twists and leaps of her imagination are made all the more meaningful by the deeper truth of human feeling that underlies them. These thirty-six short works selected by the author herself—including five previously unpublished stories—are ordered chronologically as well as by theme and voice, each tale spellbinding in its boldness and beauty. The Red Convertible is a stunning literary achievement, the collected brilliance of a fearless and inventive writer.
Louise Erdrich is considered a master of the short story form. THE RED CONVERTIBLE contains 36 short stories selected from the last three decades of her superlative literary career.
