After The Long Emergency

The same legion of readers who greedily consumed The Long Emergency (Grove, $14.00) by bestselling author JAMES HOWARD KUNSTLER, will delight at his follow-up, World Made by Hand. His new book is a speculative fiction, which makes an imaginative leap a few decades into the future, and shows us what life may be like following the long emergency brought on by the converging catastrophes of the 21st century. The book centers on the lives of the townspeople of Union Grove, NY. After the end of oil, climate change, global pandemics and resource wars, they are doing whatever they can to get by. Could Kunstler's book be a grim glimpse into our future? For fans of his first book and lovers of well-written fiction, World Made By Hand is sure to please.

James Howard Kunstler will speak and sign World Made By Hand (Atlantic, $22.00) on Tuesday, March 25, 2008 at 7:30pm at Boulder Book Store, 1107 Pearl Street, Boulder, CO.

This event is co-sponsored by Boulder County Going Local.
