The Dog Stars by Peter Heller, 320 pages.
Peter Heller composes a lyrical and nostalgic tale of a man longing for a world that was. Hig, widowed by the plagues that have swept across the world, lives now in an abandoned airfield. He spends his days flying his 1956 Cessna-looking for maurauders- with only his dog, and a perpetually angry, and heavily armed survivalist for company. He dreams of his dead wife as he watches what little is left of his world succumb to newer diseases and climate change. Bittersweet and broken-hearted.
A really beautiful book. One of this year's best.-Patrick
