Reviews

Advance Praise for Little Big Bully

"Renowned poet Heid E. Erdrich takes on environmental destruction, missing and murdered Indigenous women and more, in her characteristic voice: fierce, witty, personal and political." --Ms. Magazine

"This book broke me open. It electrified me and made my hair stand on end, tingling on my head like a mob of hypersensitive antennae. Whence came, or should I say, whence erupted, this gorgeous mind firing on all cylinders? Who is this poet orchestrating fierce musics of fragmentation and purifying anger? Behind her pitch perfect dark wit, fearless urgency and lively invention is a writer who dares to address our many selves (racial, sexual, spiritual) and their attendant assumptions. With great ardor, she captures bright, fractious, whirling bits of us, truths and contradictions, and channels them into poems that become a force of nature, like winged migration, or river rapids. This book that asks, among other amazing questions, what the most just and loving forms of self-sovereignty might look like, and what it might feel like to try to live them." --Amy Gerstler, author of Scattered at Sea
