Description:

The world Cal and Frida have always known is gone, and they've left the crumbling city of Los Angeles far behind them. They now live in a shack in the wilderness, working side-by-side to make their days tolerable in the face of hardship and isolation. But the tentative existence they've built for themselves is thrown into doubt when Frida finds out she's pregnant. Terrified of the unknown and unsure of their ability to raise a child alone, Cal and Frida set out for the nearest settlement, a guarded and paranoid community with dark secrets. These people can offer them security, but Cal and Frida soon realize this community poses dangers of its own.

Quotes:

Noteworthy...Lepucki's debut is an inventive take on the post-apocalyptic novel, about a couple who moves from an isolated existence in the wilderness to a guarded community that, they soon realize, harbors terrifying secrets and unforseen dangers., Time Out Chicago

Edan Lepucki's first novel comes steeped in Southern California literary tradition... One thinks of Steve Erickson or Cynthia Kadohata, or Carolyn See, whose 1987 novel Golden Days ends with the nuclear holocaust., Los Angeles Times

Rewarding...[One of] 30 books you NEED to read in 2014., Huffington Post

Edan Lepucki is the very best kind of writer: simultaneously generous and precise. I am long been an admirer of her prose, but this book - this book, this massive, brilliant book - is a four alarm fire, the ambitious and rich introduction that a writer of her caliber deserves. I can't wait for the world to know what I have known for so many years, that Edan Lepucki is the real thing, and that we will all be bowing at her feet before long., Emma Straub, , Author of Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures

California is carefully drawn and beautifully textured. It's a pleasure to watch love and family transform in this dark, strange forest., Ramona Ausubel, , Author of A Guide to Being Born
