With her newest novel, Louise Erdrich again surprises and deeply satisfies with her layered and compelling storytelling. The madness and uncertainty of our regressive historical moment informs Future Home of the Living God, a genre-blending literary/thriller/speculative fiction, as the pregnant main character, Cedar Hawk Songmaker, a modern Catholic Ojibway woman and adopted daughter of “Minneapolis liberals,” finds that evolution and nature are literally reversing their processes. Fantastic beasts appear on the dying trees of increasingly dystopian suburban neighborhoods, while pregnant women are tracked down by Mother, a digital ghost, and betrayed by human vigilantes, creating a disturbing, dreamlike, and yet tender vision of a near-future bearing us ceaselessly into the past…
