Earth Abides

CT Examiner senior reporter Cate Hewitt writes that: I’m reading Earth Abides by George R. Stewart, which was published in 1949. It’s a dystopian novel about the aftermath of a catastrophe that has wiped out almost the U.S. entire population. I like reading dystopian novels that explore what the world would be like if humans were forced to revert to a more primitive time and how we would adapt. This beaten-up copy of the book with its barely taped-on cover has been passed around my family for years.
