FUTURE HOME OF THE LIVING GOD

by | Read by Louise Erdrich

Fiction • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Louise Erdrich narrates her novel in a quiet voice that belies its power to convey her devastating and heart-wrenching story. Cedar, an adopted Ojibwe woman, slowly reveals the horrors of the novel's dystopian setting as she writes a diary addressed to her future baby. Evolution is going haywire, and society disintegrates as pregnant women are captured to birth their babies in hospitals, with dismal chances of survival. Erdrich's intimate narration seems as though one is hearing Cedar recount her story herself; she voices her interpretations of her white adoptive and Native birth families, along with nightmarish hospital staff and snatchers of pregnant women. Erdrich devastates with her story as she projects Cedar's strength, convictions, and pain as she fights for control over her body and the destiny of her unborn child.
