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.

«La belleza de Filtro de amor nos salva de ser completamente aniquilados por su poder.» Toni Morrison Filtro de amor, que fue el exitosísimo debut literario de Louise Erdrich, es la fascinante historia de dos familias indias de la tribu chipewa, los Kaspaw y los Lamartine. Desposeídos por el hombre blanco de su cultura, religión y poder económico, lanzados a la guerra de Vietnam, a las tortuosas sendas del cristianismo o al consumismo más primario, su existencia se verá marcada por una crisis de identidad que afectará a todos sus actos. Escrita con su inimitable estilo, Louise Erdrich nos presenta un vívido retrato de la difícil existencia de una minoría durante el siglo XX, que es a la vez un canto a la sensualidad y que nos desvela la auténtica receta para elaborar un poderoso filtro de amor.
