James Howard Kunstler's Apocalypto Nation
World Made by Hand: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
by James Howard Kunstler (Author)
Seems to be a poor man’s Cormac McCarthy. Post-apocalyptic story that borders on preachy but also pretty scary vision of a climate that has finally spit out humans. LA and DC have been obliterated, but the protagonists in Upstate New York live in a world without journalists, so nobody really knows what is actually happening even as much as 5 miles away.
I read the first chapter and may continue this book at some point. Kunstler’s also got an entertaining and crotchety blog called Clusterfuck Nation, where he rails on current events.
