Louise Erdrich: Transcendent novelist

Louise Erdrich signs my book

Louise Erdrich signs my book

One of my favorite novelists for over 25 years, Louise Erdrich, in an odyssey of fifteen novels has offered not purely a fine landscape of her Ojibwe Native American half-ancestry but a view of human passion and elasticity moving beyond the bounds of mere experience—of loss and recovery of spirit—which serves to unite fiction’s cure for alienation: unity of author, reader and character. Begin with “The Beet Queen” and move through “Plague of Doves” & “The Round House” to reach her latest book, “LaRose.” I attach a photo of us at a signing at Keplers Books, Menlo Park, California, this week.
