New from Louise Erdrich

Future Home of the Living God

Future Home of the Living God

First printing, first edition. Signed by Louise.

The world as we know it is ending. Evolution has reversed itself, affecting every living creature on earth. Science cannot stop the world from running backwards, as woman after woman gives birth to infants that appear to be primitive species of humans. Thirty-two-year-old Cedar Hawk Songmaker, adopted daughter of a pair of big-hearted, open-minded Minneapolis liberals, is as disturbed and uncertain as the rest of America around her. But for Cedar, this change is profound and deeply personal. She is four months pregnant. A chilling dystopian novel both provocative and prescient, Future Home of the Living God is a startlingly original work: a moving meditation on female agency, self-determination, biology, and natural rights that speaks to the troubling changes of our time.
