About This Item

(New York): HarperFlamingo, 1998. Hardcover. Very Good/Near Fine. First edition. Pages age-toned with some underlining, highlighting and marginalia, spine ends and corners lightly bumped, about very good in a near fine dustwrapper with some creasing. Signed by the author.

Synopsis

The Antelope Wife extends the branches of the families who populate Louise Erdrich's earlier novels, and once again, her unsentimental, unsparing writing captures the Native American sense of despair, magic, and humor. Rooted in myth and set in contemporary Minneapolis, this poetic and haunting story spans a century, at the center of which is a mysterious and graceful woman known as the Antelope Wife. Elusive, silent, and bearing a mystical link to nature, she embodies a complicated quest for love and survival that impacts lives in unpredictable ways. Her tale is an unpredictable ways. Her tale is an unforgettable tapestry of ancestry, fate, harrowing tragedy, and redemption, that seems at once modern and eternal.
