"Josh Emmons has created a wholly original, brave, and disturbingly plausible novel, an existential, theological, fin du monde thriller about star-crossed orphans, twenty-first-century cults, environmental angst, and the extreme consequences of desire."
James P. Othmer author of target="_top">The Futurist
"[This book] is an acidly hilarious, tightly plotted adventure that folds big themes, romantic moments, and a little thing called the end of the world into its pages...It's as probing and smart as it is moving, hopeful, and sweet."
Alix Ohlin author of Babylon and Other Stories
