Description

Winner of THE AGE BOOK OF THE YEAR 2009.

We think we've seen it all before, but the future still arrives without warning.
For the wry narrator of this riveting journey, each shift brings him somewhere new-he's protecting his grandparents from the world outside their city gates; he's evacuating squatters before the rains wash away everything; he's enjoying a senator's coddled enclave in the hills; he's being stalked up a tree by a plague survivor; he's negotiating love with a woman who is far tougher than he could ever be; he's leading adventure tours for the terminally ill. Despite the permanent emergency of the landscape, this fractured evolution feels anything but grim-instead, it reveals what it means to survive.

"A small marvel, overflowing with ideas." - The Guardian

"Preternaturally assured, finely crafted and thoroughly accomplished, it deserves to be read widely."-The Age(Melbourne)

The things we didn't see coming

This book makes THE ROAD seem like a comic soap opera! Some clever writing and good imagery, but frankly, it was not my sort of dystopia.
