Product Details


“A Maine camping trip turns into a fight for survival in this meditative dystopian thriller from Heller….Despite the high stakes, Heller gives the narrative plenty of space to breathe, allowing him to cast a haunting, immersive spell as his heroes traverse the ruined landscape. Painterly descriptions of nature and sparkling philosophical ruminations…elevate the proceedings. The result is a wilderness adventure with real emotional depth.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Heller’s novel follows Jess and Storey, two friends in Maine, as their annual hunting trip turns calamitous . . . The exact nature of the catastrophe isn’t revealed until partway through . . . Heller ably captures the white-knuckle momentum as the two men try to stay alive—bringing this book closer in tone to James Dickey’s WWII–era thriller To the White Sea than to Cormac McCarthy’s The Road . . . An ambitious story of survival . . . Thrilling.”
