Review:

"Ingenious...Provocative." -- "New York Times""Frighteningly credible and exciting reading." -- "Library Journal""An extraordinary real picture of human beings numbed by catastrophe but still driven by the unconquerable determination of living creatures to keep on being alive." -- "The New Yorker""A warm, continuously interesting story of what can happen to a group of ordinary people in a perilous situation." -- "New York Herald Tribune""An enthralling and vivid story of the follies and failures of people, their courage and cruelty, their treachery and triumphs. Mr. Frank is a magnificent writer." -- "Chicago Sunday Tribune""Frank is successful enough in making us believe it could indeed happen here to send a small, fearful chill along our backbone." -- "Saturday Review"

From the Back Cover:

"Alas, Babylon." Those fateful words heralded the end. When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States, a thousand years of civilization are stripped away overnight, and tens of millions of people are killed instantly. But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the struggle is just beginning, as men and women of all backgrounds join together to confront the darkness.
