From a book description:

Author Biography:

Louise Erdrich is one of the most gifted, prolific, and challenging of contemporary Native American novelists. Born in 1954 in Little Falls, Minnesota, she grew up mostly in Wahpeton, North Dakota, where her parents taught at Bureau of Indian Affairs schools. Her fiction reflects aspects of her mixed heritage: German through her father, and French and Ojibwa through her mother. She worked at various jobs, such as hoeing sugar beets, farm work, waitressing, short order cooking, lifeguarding, and construction work, before becoming a writer. She attended the Johns Hopkins creative writing program and received fellowships at the McDowell Colony and the Yaddo Colony. After she was named writer-in-residence at Dartmouth, she married professor Michael Dorris and raised several children, some of them adopted. She and Michael became a picture-book husband-and-wife writing team, though they wrote only one truly collaborative novel, The Crown of Columbus (1991).

The Antelope Wife was published in 1998, not long after her separation from Michael and his subsequent suicide. Some reviewers believed they saw in The Antelope Wife the anguish Erdrich must have felt as her marriage crumbled, but she has stated that she is unconscious of having mirrored any real-life events.

She is the author of four previous bestselling andaward-winning novels, including Love Medicine; The Beet Queen; Tracks; and The Bingo Palace. She also has written two collections of poetry, Jacklight, and Baptism of Desire. Her fiction has been honored by the National Book Critics Circle (1984) and The Los Angeles Times (1985), and has been translated into fourteen languages.

Several of her short stories have been selected for O. Henry awards and for inclusion in the annual Best American Short Story anthologies. The Blue Jay's Dance, a memoir of motherhood, was her first nonfiction work, and her children's book, Grandmother's Pigeon, has been published by Hyperion Press. She lives in Minnesota with her children, who help her run a small independent bookstore called The Birchbark.

Cuando Irene America descubre que su marido, un pintor amerindio de cierta fama llamado Gil, lee sus diarios, empieza a redactar un secreto Cuaderno Azul que guarda en la caja fuerte de un banco. En él anota la verdad sobre su vida y su matrimonio, mientras convierte el Diario Rojo –escondido donde Gil pueda encontrarlo– en una engañosa manipulación.
Ambos intentarán ocultar el fracaso de su matrimonio ante sus tres hijos: Florian, un genio de catorce años que se refugia en los porros y en las botellas de vino robadas; Riel, una niña de once años obsesionada por mantener a su familia unida; y el pequeño Stoney, que nació cuando todo comenzaba a desmoronarse.
Irene, al ver su hogar convertido en un infierno, decide poner fin a su matrimonio. Pero su apego a Gil está jalonado de sombrías necesidades.
Con una brillante y contenida prosa, El juego de la sombra explora la compleja naturaleza del amor, los difusos límites de la identidad y la lucha de una familia por la supervivencia.
