Louise Erdrich : a critical companion by Lorena Laura Stookey( )

16 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,979 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Louise Erdrich, following in the Native American narrative tradition, has crafted enduring tales of homecomings. Her widely acclaimed debut novel Love Medicine garnered prestigious awards, and quickly made its way onto bestseller lists, and into readers' hearts. In this full-length critical volume, Stookey uncovers the layers of wisdom and humor imbedded in Erdrich's engaging writing.
