AFTER THE FLOOD by Kassandra Montag - Review in Kirkus

KIRKUS | JULY 28, 2019

“Debut novelist Montag manages to marry page-turning drama and emotional depth, vividly imagining a world where society rebuilds itself from scratch and history repeats, where bubonic plague flares up again and rope and sailcloth and antibiotics are all coveted goods, and where everyone is moving on in some way from insurmountable loss. ‘I keep thinking it feels like climbing a staircase while looking down,’ one woman tells Myra about losing her children. ‘You won’t forget where you’ve been, but you’ve got to keep rising. It all gets further away, but it’s all still there.’

A fortifying affirmation of human endurance in the face of our dire climate prognosis.”
