In the sequel to his bestselling World Made by Hand, James Howard Kunstler expands on his vision of a postoil society with a new novel about an America in which the electricity has flickered off, the Internet is a distant memory, and the government is little more than a rumor. In the tiny hamlet of Union Grove, New York, travel is horsedrawn and farming is back at the center of life. But its no pastoral haven. Wars are fought over dwindling resources and illness is a constant presence. Bandits roam the countryside, preying on the weak, and a sinister cult threatens to shatter Union Groves fragile stability. Here is a novel that seamlessly weaves hotbutton issues like the decline of oil and the perils of climate change into a compelling narrative of violence, religious hysteria, innocence lost, and love founda cautionary tale with an optimistic heart. Already a renowned social commentator and a bestselling novelist and nonfiction writer, Kunstler has recently attained even greater prominence in the global conversation about energy and the environment. In the last two years he has been the focus of a long profile in the New Yorker, the subject of a fullpage essay in the New York Times Book Review, and his wildly popular blog and podcast have made him a soughtafter speaker who gives dozens of lectures and scores of media interviews each year.
