Ash gets on a Greyhound bus to the place Bly was last seen: Snowflake, Arizona. Six thousand feet up in the wide red desert, Ash meets Mona; her goat, Socrates; her dog, Blackie; and finds stepbrother Bly, too. In their ramshackle homes, the walls lined with tinfoil, Mona and her neighbors are all sick. But this isn't any ordinary sickness: modern life has poisoned them, and when Ash too falls ill, the doctor's response is, "It's all in your mind." Meanwhile, as Ash lives through a cycle of illness and recovery and loss, the world beyond is succumbing to its own affliction: a breakdown of civilization only distantly perceived by Ash and the isolated residents of Snowflake, from which there may or may not be a chance for recovery. This humane and thoughtful novel is about resilience, trust, family, and love, when all seems lost.

Review:

An ominous, relevant, and uniquely compelling read.

This raw, deeply philosophical tale leaves readers with a timely, sobering message about how humankind's treatment of the environment impacts the environment's treatment of humankind.

A provocative story of illness and forthcoming apocalypse.

Will appeal to both realistic fiction and sci-fi readers.

Book Description Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Ash boards a Greyhound bus heading to the place where Bly was last seen: Snowflake, Arizona. Six thousand feet up in the wide red desert, Ash meets Mona, her dog, her goat, and her neighbors, and finds stepbrother Bly, too. In their ramshackle homes, the walls lined with tinfoil, almost all the residents of Snowflake are sick. But this isn't any ordinary sickness: the chemicals and technologies of modern life are poisoning them. They call themselves canaries, living warning signs that humans have pushed the environment too far, except no one seems to be taking their warnings seriously. The healthy "normies" of Snowflake have written them off as a bunch of eccentrics, and when Ash too falls ill, the doctor's response is "It's all in your mind." Snowflake, AZ contemplates illness and health-both our own and our planet's. As Ash lives through a cycle of illness and recovery and loss, the world beyond is succumbing to its own affliction: a breakdown of civilization only distantly perceived by Ash and the isolated residents of Snowflake, from which there may or may not be a chance for recovery. This provocative novel by one of our most admired storytellers explores the resilience of love and community in the face of crisis. Seller Inventory # AAS9781324004417
