Published: Harper - August 11th, 2020

The New Wilderness imagines an environmental crisis so dire that some must live as nomads on the Wilderness State--the last nature preserve in the world. With prose as incisive as it is poignant, this novel explores what aspects of us remain when the world is in crisis. I think readers of Margaret Atwood would enjoy this book as a work of speculative fiction. --Violet
