A post-apocalyptic doomsday novel from"one of the truly great American writers of the 20th century" (The Guardian). In the dystopian future, the government has collapsed, cities are burning, and roving gangs, called Mau Maus, are marauding across America. A drifter named Walter Stone finds refuge at a lakeside camp, where the survivors of a plane crash have met up with other refugees, and are struggling with a constantly changing cast of leaders, as well as limited supplies. Across the lake stands the palatial Valhalla, a mansion well supplied with food and ammunition, where a wealthy junkman and his daughters live. The goal is to take control of Valhalla. The obstacles are certain death across the lake, roving bands of killers threatening the camp, and a way of life that is quickly slipping away. "A commanding writer of unusual delicacy and power." -The New Yorker "A born storyteller." -St. Louis Post-Dispatch
