Louise Erdrich is the author of twelve novels as well as volumes of poetry, children's books, and a memoir of early motherhood. Her Love Medicine won the National Book Critics Circle Award and The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse was a finalist for the National Book Award. Her latest book is The Plague of Doves.

She shared with Newsweek a list of her five most important books. One title on the list:
The World Without Us by Alan Weisman.

The most shattering and consoling book I read this year.
