Product description

Review

[A] blistering little classic…Millet’s wit and her penchant for strange twists produce the kind of climate fiction we need: a novel that moves beyond the realm of reporting and editorial, a story that explores how alarming and baffling it feels to endure the destruction of one’s world. Take this book, eat it up.—Ron Charles, Washington Post

This superb novel begins as a generational comedy...and turns steadily darker, as climate collapse and societal breakdown encroach. But Millet’s light touch never falters; in this time of great upheaval, she implies, our foundational myths take on new meaning and hope.—New York Times Book Review

To call it a generational allegory seems like an understatement. Millet is one of the most fascinating novelists working.—Wall Street Journal Magazine

[D]arkly funny and painfully sharp.—Carolyn Kellogg, Los Angeles Times

Millet mordantly captures the complacency of older generations in the face of apocalypse, and the righteous anger, endurance, and practicality of the young.—New Yorker

[C]ompellingly written, compact [and] slyly funny.—Jeffrey Ann Goldie, Boston Globe

An American chaos story about a climate-changed future…A Children’s Bible gains strength from its contradictions. It is hilarious yet tender; absurd yet chillingly realistic, nostalgic yet prescient. —Halimah Marcus, Electric Lit

Blazingly witty.—Entertainment Weekly

[A] tense, prophetic…[and] gripping page-turner.—Donna Bettencourt, Library Journal (starred review)

As bewitching, unflinching, wry, and profoundly attuned to the state of the planet as ever, supremely gifted Millet tells a commanding and wrenching tale of cataclysmic change and what it will take to survive.—Donna Seaman, Booklist

Eco-fiction dystopias often make our climate future outright calamities of tidal waves and massive tree die-offs. Millet…knows what’s coming is likely to be more subtle, and the slow-motion collapse she imagines in her latest novel is what makes it so harrowing.—Mark Athitakis, Kirkus Reviews

If you think it’s hard to find original voices in contemporary fiction, you’re not really reading properly—Millet is one such voice: comic, erudite, humane.—Jonny Diamond, Literary Hub
