FROM THIS EPISODE

Louise Erdrich's beautiful short novel, The Painted Drum (Harper Collins), emerged over a period of ten years, after an older story suddenly suggested deeper meanings. Erdrich wrote the novel in layers, gradually, like a painter working with oils. Choosing texture over simple narration is our subject.

Read an excerpt from The Painted Drum.
