Each short picks up on Ireland’s pulse — what subtle yet important life force flows through seemingly normal narratives. Plus, “The Dead” is, in my opinion, the best short ever written.

In Future Home of the Living God, Cedar Snowmaker attempts to return to her Ojibwa family as a pregnant woman. But these are not ordinary times: evolution has become devolution; dragonflies the size of small dogs flit amongst the trees, some sort of large-tooth cat kills a neighbor’s lab, and pregnant women wonder what shape life will take within their wombs. There are echoes of the horrors endured by native communities as it becomes mandatory for all pregnant women to be institutionalized. Fear permeates these pages, but so does bravery and hope. Are species, homo sapiens included, really moving backwards? Or, is moving backwards going to offer a new way of going forward? Erdrich attempts to reclaim a sort of hope hidden in this reversal. Cedar, who has been raised by white parents, who is Catholic, who continues to write articles on the Immaculate Conception as the world falls apart around her, faces these horrors, and in a way owns them, ultimately attempting to claim a new beginning for herself, her baby, and her people.
