Books about Louise Erdrich
Louise Erdrich recommends
Gathering Home (1988)
Vicki Covington
"Vicki Covington has the courage to write with tenderness, the wit to keep her characters close to the heart. Gathering Home is... full of loveliness and restrained tension."
Last Standing Woman (1997)
Winona LaDuke
"This book goes out into the world much as a prayer. Reading it, I am blessed by the writer's use of language and strengthened by her courageous vision."
Here We Are in Paradise (1998)
Tony Earley
"Tony Earley does the practically impossible... these stories are both incredibly and effortlessly convincing."
Asymmetry (2018)
Lisa Halliday
"Asymmetry is a novel of deceptive lightness and a sort of melancholy joy. Lisa Halliday writes with tender laugh-aloud wit, but under her formidable, reckoning gaze a world of compelling characters emerges. She steps onto the literary stage with the energy of a debut novelist and the confidence of a mature writer."
