Louise Erdrich originally came to public notice with her first novel, Love Medicine (1984), which won the National Book Critic’s Circle Award, and followed that with a second success, The Beet Queen (1986). Erdrich is from Minnesota, and her ethnic background includes the Ojibway and Chippewa tribes; she is an enrolled member of the Turtle Mountain Band of the Chippewa. Many of her works explore the psychology and world of Native Americans, but her work cannot be confined to a particular ethnic identity. Nonetheless, she is considered a major voice in the American Indian renaissance. She has published fourteen books, as well as short stories, poems, and children’s stories. In November 2012 she won the National Book Award for her novel The Round House.

Louise Erdrich captó por primera vez la atención pública con su novela Love Medicine (1984), ganadora del Premio del Círculo Nacional de Críticos de Libros, a la cual siguió un segundo éxito, The Beet Queen (1986). Erdrich es nativa de Minnesota y tiene herencia étnica de las tribus ojibway y chippewa; de hecho, es integrante oficial de la Banda Turtle Mountain de los chippewa. Muchas de sus obras exploran la psicología y el mundo de los pueblos nativos de Estados Unidos, aunque su trabajo no se limita a una identidad étnica particular. No obstante, se le considera una de las voces principales del renacimiento indígena americano. Ha publicado catorce libros, además de cuentos, poemas y relatos infantiles. En noviembre de 2012 ganó el Premio Nacional del Libro por su novela The Round House.
