Description

Humanity hangs on after the fall of civilization in this "wily, funny, rip-roaring, and profoundly provocative page-turner" (Booklist, starred review). After the collapse of the old world—the pandemics, the environmental disasters, the end of oil, the ensuing chaos—people are pursuing a simpler and sometimes happier existence. In Union Grove, New York, the townspeople are preparing for Christmas . . . the perfect time for a long-lost member of the community to return. Robert Earle's son, Daniel, has come home after two years exploring what is left of the United States. He brings news of three new nations arisen from what was once America—and the dangers and possibilities they may hold. Meanwhile, a horrific murder threatens to turn the community of Union Grove against itself—and what is supposed to be a time of peace and togetherness is overtaken by suspicion and fear. In this vividly depicted look at a world that may be on our own horizon, "Kunstler skewers everything from kitsch to greed, prejudice, bloodshed, and brainwashing" in a gripping story of hope, hate, and humanity's last chance at survival (Booklist).
