About the Book

The world as we know it is ending.  Evolution has reversed itself as women have begun giving birth to babies that appear to be a primitive species of human.  When rumors start of Congress rounding up and confining pregnant women, Cedar Hawk Songmaker will do anything to keep herself and her unborn baby safe.

A chilling dystopian novel both provocative and prescient, Future Home of the Living God is a startlingly original work from one of our most acclaimed writers: a moving meditation on female agency, self-determination, biology, and natural rights that speaks to the troubling changes of our time.

Critical Praise

“Masterful…a breakout work of speculative fiction…Erdrich enters the realm of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale…A tornadic, suspenseful, profoundly provoking novel of life’s vulnerability and insistence…with a bold apocalyptic theme, searing social critique, and high-adrenaline action.” - Booklist, Starred Review

“[A] startling new work of speculative fiction…strikingly relevant. Erdrich has written a cautionary tale for this very moment in time.” - Publishers Weekly, boxed review

“A dazzling work of dystopian fiction a la Handmaid’s Tale.” - Real Simple

“Propulsive, wry, and keenly observant…this chilling speculative fiction is perfect for readers seeking the next Handmaid’s Tale.” - Library Journal

“[Erdrich] once again proves her talent for narrating a profound and compelling story.” - Ms. Magazine

“Dreamlike, suspenseful…this novel is bracing, humane, dedicated to witnessing the plight of women in a cruel universe, and full of profound spiritual questions and observations. Like some of Erdrich’s earlier work, it shifts adroitly in time and has a thoughtful, almost mournful insight into life on a Native reservation…There is much to rue in this novel about our world but also hope for salvation.” - Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
