Shifting Identity in the Work of Louise Erdrich and Michael Dorris.
Rayson, Ann
Studies in American Indian Literatures, v3 n4 p27-36 Win 1991
Erdrich and Dorris, spouses of mixed Anglo-Indian heritage, have written novels addressing the issues of shifting racial identity and marginality among mixed-blood persons. In "The Crown of Columbus," such persons are "catches" fastening two cultures together, and the authors synthesize a male-female Native American-EuroAmerican voice. (SV)
