About the Book

A passionate book of poetry from New York Times bestselling author Louise Erdrich.

In this important collection, award-winning author Louise Erdrich has selected poems from her two previous books of poetry, Jacklight and Baptism of Desire, and has added nineteen new poems to compose Original Fire.

“These molten poems radiate with the ferocity of desire, and in them Erdrich does not spin verse so much as tell tales—of betrayal and revenge, of hunting and being hunted.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune

Critical Praise

“The poems are hypnotic and retain an emphatic passionate fire.” - Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Essential reading for fans of Erdrich’s fiction, this volume can be expected to draw poetry readers into the fold.” - Library Journal (starred review)

“Artistically impressive and highly entertaining.” - Miami Herald

“Erdrich is profoundly sensual, frankly bawdy and slyly comedic.” - Booklist
