California: A Dystopian Novel by Edan Lepucki

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Edan Lepucki talks about her debut novel, California, which imagines a frighteningly realistic dystopian future. Cal and Frida live in a shack in the wilderness, working side-by-side in the face of hardship and isolation. But the tentative existence is thrown into doubt when Frida finds out she's pregnant. They set out for the nearest settlement, a guarded and paranoid community with dark secrets.

I was not aware of this book until today. Quite a lot on the show about the Colbert plug/recommendation.

If you like this style but want some hopefulness, see Starhawk's The Fifth Sacred Thing.
