9780006547914: Tales of Burning Love (Flamingo original)

An epic study in the varieties of love from one of America’s greatest story-weavers, and winner of the National Book Award for Fiction 2012.

‘Falling back in love with your first wife while married to your fifth was a sticky, stupid business.’

Jack Mause simply feels too much. A builder sparring with bankruptcy, he finds that the women in his life accuse him of being emotionally barren, too. Yet this is a man who makes love in a convent, frightens a nun right to death and lets the pretty young stranger he has just married walk off alone into a blizzard. Jack has a very rich history. And he has a secret: his marriages crack on what he conceals.

His women swirl about in his wake, disoriented, stormy and changed. They are becalmed by the realization that they each married a different Jack Mauser, contrived a different history. Marooned, frozen, in a snow-bound car, and in order to survive, Jack’s wifes find themselves telling each other a last of the secret history each shares with him – stories that revive, warming tales of burning love.

Review:

‘Erdrich writes with marvellous zest.’ Sunday Times

About the Author:

Louise Erdrich is one of the most gifted, prolific, and challenging of American novelists. Her fiction reflects aspects of her mixed heritage: German through her father, and French and Ojibwa through her mother. She is the author of many novels, the first of which, Love Medicine, won the National Book Critics Circle Award and the last of which, The Round House, won the National Book Award for Fiction in 2012. She lives in Minnesota.
