A father and his son walk alone through burned America, heading through the ravaged landscape to the coast. This audiobook boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which two people, 'each the other's world entire', are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation. CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE AND/OR ADULT THEMES.
