The Pesthouse Summary
`The Pesthouse finds the author not just on his own best form, but arguably the best form any English writer has shown in the last couple of years' Spectator A devastated America exists in an imagined future. Its technologies are forgotten, its communities have splintered and its refugees, reversing the course of history, travel eastwards in search of safety and a new start. Among them are Franklin and Margaret, young, bereft, forced together by circumstance; but finding that love, courage and determination can endure even as a country breaks slowly apart. `Evoking the cracked terrain of a depleted America, Crace proves himself a fine stylist, sensitive to the cadence of every sentence' Financial Times `Entirely compelling. The story is a gripping, harrowing adventure tale and Crace's language is extraordinary . . . The Pesthouse resonates like an unresolved chord' New Statesman `Gripping, exciting and oddly romantic' Daily Mail
