The first review is in for Polly and the One and Only World, by Don Bredes, and it’s a good one:
In Mr. Bredes’ novel, both nuclear war and climate change have apparently afflicted the country. New York is demolished and radioactive. The coasts are ravaged and dangerous. Large-scale agriculture is a thing of the past, as are gas-fueled vehicles.
Vermont survives, as it likely would in the face of climate change, but it’s altered, and it’s not safe. No place is safe in a country so desperate that the worst of human nature goes unchecked.
Read the entire review here. Polly and the One and Only World will be out in stores October 6th.
