The author of the acclaimed post-apocalyptic novel The Old Man and the Wasteland returns!

My Review

The characters and setting win in this novel.
The sparse post-apocalyptic setting is described with sentences written in short sparse prose. I liked the characters used and the way he wrote this, a good flowing on the road to somewhere story.
