Remember (who would?) that after reading The Round House, I made a plan to re-read all of Erdrich's novels? I just finished The Beet Queen (Wowzer, what a good read.) which means I've completed four of her fourteen novels. Percentage wise, I'm on mile seven of a marathon. This comparison might not work, because I don't think marathoners are thrilled to have a long stretch of miles (books) in front of them. Next, Tracks - an appropriate title for the marathon.
