She is a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa.

Erdrich published a number of poems and short stories from 1978 to 1982. In 1981 she married author and anthropologist Michael Dorris, and together they published The World's Greatest Fisherman, which won the Nelson Algren Award in 1982. In 1984 she won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Love Medicine, which is an expansion of a story that she had co-written with Dorris. Love Medicine was also awarded the Virginia McCormick Scully Prize (1984), the Sue Kaufman Prize (1985) and the Los Angeles Times Award for best novel (1985). In addition to her prose, Erdrich has written several volumes of poetry, a textbook, children's books, and short stories and essays for popular magazines. She has been the recipient of numerous awards for professional excellence, including the National Magazine Fiction Award in 1983 and a first-prize O. Henry Award in 1987. Erdrich has also received the Pushcart Prize in Poetry, the Western Literacy Association Award, the 1999 World Fantasy Award, and the Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction in 2006. In 2007 she refused to accept an honorary doctorate from the University of North Dakota in protest of its use of the "Fighting Sioux" name and logo. Erdrich's novel The Round House made the New York Times bestseller list in 2013. Her other New York Times bestsellers include Future Home of the Living God (2017).

Recensioni

L’ambiente è quello descritto così bene da Louise Erdrich ne La casa tonda e nei suoi romanzi precedenti: le riserve indiane degli stati settentrionali americani, quelli al confine con il Canada, in questo caso il North Dakota. Qui il romanzo si apre, all’inizio del Novecento, con la breve descrizione di una strage. Qualcuno ha sterminato una famiglia, lasciando viva, aggrappata alle sbarre del lettino, solo una bambina. Questo delitto – mai risolto nel corso degli anni – sarà soltanto la prima di una lunga serie di vicende, drammatiche e comiche in giusta proporzione, che ci verranno raccontate di volta in volta da Evelina Harp, controfigura dell’autrice tra infanzia e adolescenza; da suo nonno, il vecchissimo Mooshum, grande affabulatore di aneddoti e tall stories nella tradizione pellerossa; e dal giudice Antone Bazil Coutts, un sanguemisto che dopo aver diretto per anni un cimitero occupa lo scranno di magistrato delegato a dirimere piccole controversie secondo le leggi tribali in vigore.… (altro)
