Louise Erdrich discusses her new novel, The Round House, which is set on a reservation in North Dakota. It's about a boy whose life is irrevocably transformed after his mother is attacked.
Mr. Lopate: I heard your question regarding the assault on the Native American woman in Erdrich's book as, "was this a typical reaction from a Native American woman?" Can you explain on the air to those of us who do not believe in such stereotyping, what a "typical" reaction might be? Thank you.R. Barsam
