“Making Mischief,” by Ana Juan.
Fiction from the Archives
“The woman had not named the stone. She had thought that naming the stone would be an insult to its ineﬀable gravity.”
“Wolfred asked the girl to tell him her name. He asked in words, he asked in signs, but she wouldn’t speak.”
The Reptile Garden
“I locked myself in my room, which I soon realized was a garden for lizards, geckos, garter snakes, and some exotics, like a hooded cobra.”
“Nothing I write ever has a moral,” Louise Erdrich, who won a Pulitzer Prize in 2021, told The New Yorker
. Still, whether she’s writing about Ojibwe history or tragicomic small-town life, her stories often have a fable-like or mythic quality: a stone becomes a woman’s lifelong companion; a child is pursued by a dead man’s head. In the semi-magical world of Erdrich’s fiction, we are invited to make our own connections.
