Description


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
