From the author of the critically acclaimed literary SF novels Spaceman Blues and Liberation comes an incandescent and thrilling post-apocalyptic tale in the vein of 1984 or The Road .

In the not-distant-enough future, a man takes a boat trip up the Susquehanna River with his most trusted friend, intent on reuniting with his son. But the man is pursued by an army, and his own harrowing past; and the familiar American landscape has been savaged by war and climate change until it is nearly unrecognizable.

Lost Everything is a stunning novel about family and faith, what we are afraid may come to be, and how to wring hope from hopelessness.

Lost Everything is the winner of the 2013 Philip K. Dick Award.

The only way I can describe this story is "dream-like" and full of holes. Even with my imagination, I could not put this story together.

I am always looking for some good post apocalyptic fiction but there is none here.

I have no idea what "Stream of Consciousnesses" means as this reviewer writes. I guess I'll take the advice & not bother.

The "Stream of Consciousness" style employed by this author makes this book unreadable. Don't waste your time with it.
