In one of the most stunning debuts to come along in years,
reminiscent of Philip K. Dick’s best work and P. D. James’s classic The
Children of Men, David Oppegaard gives us a world whose near future presents
some terrifying realities.
The Despair has plagued the earth for five years. Most of
the world’s population has inexplicably died by its own hand, and the few
