Meet the Writers
Though her books are fictional, Louise Erdrich is contributing an evocation of Native American history that has been all too absent from our country's literature. Rambling across centuries and populating her books with quirky, intense characters, Erdrich creates bittersweet family sagas that have won her a loyal readership. In our interview, Erdrich reveals that she gets inspired by everyday people. "I happen to be fortunate enough to be one of these people that people tell stories to," she explains.
