The antelope wife
Louise Erdrich
Adult Fiction ERDRICH

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

Summary: A novel of connections in which history, lust, contemporary Native American life, hand-me-down names, and legends combine. Set in Minneapolis, originally an important trading centre and hunting ground, the story goes back in time. The intertwining lives and themes of the novel include tragic loss, confusions of passion, transformation, betrayals, revenge, and an obsession to recreate a perfect German cake, remembered from a taste decades earlier. Once again, her unsentimental writing captures the Native American sense of despair, magic, and humour in an unforgettable book.
