Louise Erdrich’s Tales of Burning Love is a darkly humorous novel of wild romance and heartbreak set against a raging North Dakota blizzard as five Native American women bond over their shared connection to one man.

Stranded in the storm just outside of Fargo, Jack Mauser’s former wives pass the night by remembering how each came to love, marry, and ultimately move beyond Jack. Painful and comic by turns, the women’s tales bind them together.

National Book Award-winning and bestselling author Louise Erdrich’s characteristic powers of observation and poetic prose combine in a tale that is another tour-de-force from one of America’s most formidable writers.

This edition of Tales of Burning Love includes a P.S. section with additional insights from the author, background material, suggestions for further reading, and more.

Louise Erdrich, a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa, is the author of many novels as well as volumes of poetry, children’s books, and a memoir of early motherhood.

A ghost lives in her creaky old house.
