The city is San Francisco. The not long after refers to a devastating worldwide plague that has wiped out most of the planet's population. The people who survive in San Francisco are mostly artists, hippies, and misfits who pull together a viable community and transform the city. But when a military general determines to reunite the remnants of the once great United States and sets his sights on San Francisco, the people resist, figuring they have already discovered a better way of life, and stage an artistically creative kind of guerrilla warfare that becomes one of the oddest battles ever fought.

Selected by the New York Times as a Notable Book of 1989, The City, Not Long After is a superb human drama told through the eyes of unforgettable characters.

    " Beautiful images, and the city as a character is fantastic. Unfortunately the rest of the characters, and the story, are not quite as well fleshed out. Great idea, though, and a fun, fast read. "

    " Tremendously fun read. Post-apocalyptic story set in San Francisco. "

    " This novel post-apocalyptic San Francisco reads like a dream--mechanical angels flying through the financial district, rains of flowers, and misdirecting fog. The plot doesn't really pick up until the last third of the book, but it was a fun read, if a bit slow. "

    " Best een ok boek. Mocht wel nog verder uitgewerkt zijn. "
