    I have read many articles that encourage people to consume fiction because the activity builds empathy. It allows you to walk in the shoes of people from different corners of the globe.

    I never believed that idea until I read Erdrich’s work. Her books are populated by unique characters with rich backstories. You know who they are and what they want to achieve.

    Erdrich develops these individuals gradually until you understand their motivations as clearly as you would those of any real person in your life. The author delivers poignant messages about life, family, and friendships without getting too preachy. I love the subtlety.
