Starring Louise Erdrich as Herself Exclusive Clip Louise Erdrich on “Louise and the Millers”
To discuss her newest book, Louise Erdrich chats with Fox News’ Janet Hook about her latest book, Louise and the Millers.
Besides the Kindle, Robert Jordan and Terry Brooks have been the most consistently best-selling authors for decades. But the suspense of fantasy fiction might just outdo the thrill of the read.
In her recently published debut fantasy novel, Louise Erdrich, an award-winning author and author-in-residence at the University of Minnesota, takes readers on a roller-coaster journey through Julliard, a girls’ boarding school, a fighter pilot academy, a college abroad and a fictional New England town.
In Louise and the Millers, Erdrich knows how to spin her dark, gritty plots, but she also brings charm and more whimsical elements to the mix.
“I wish readers could just sit down and have a drink with me,” Erdrich said when we spoke to her by phone. She’s not kidding. “I’m a hopeless romantic.”
To coincide with the release of Louise and the Millers, Fox News’ Jessie Potts sits down with the Minnesota author to talk about this swashbuckling adventure, the movie rights, the bestselling genre and finally the mystery of her true identity.
Among other things, I learn what she actually means when she writes about her hatred of chain stores. And why “Five Season” was such a wise choice for her nickname in the book.
“Five Season” has been a big seller, but this new book is clearly an adventure and one that more devoted Erdrich fans are looking forward to.
