“Take the sensibility of Hemingway. Or James Dickey. Place it in a world where a flu mutation has wiped out ninety-nine percent of the population. Add in a heartbroken man with a fishing rod, some guns, a small plane. Don’t forget the dog. Now imagine this man retains more hope than might be wise in such a battered and brutal time… . That’s what Peter Heller has given us in his beautifully written first novel.”
—Scott Smith, author of A Simple Plan and The Ruins
