Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Once the safest, most prosperous place on earth, the United States has become sparsely populated and chaotically unstable. Across the country, families have traveled toward the one hope left: passage on a ship to Europe. As Franklin Lopez makes his way towards the ocean, he finds Margaret, a sick woman shunned to die in isolation. Tentatively, the two join forces, heading towards their future. With striking prose and a deep understanding of the American ethos, Jim Crace, one of our most consistently ambitious writers, creates in The Pesthouse a masterful tale of the human drive to endure.

Synopsis:

From the incomparable Jim Crace, two-time winner of the Whitbread Prize and shortlist candidate for the Booker, comes his most accessible work to date. Rich in detail, sweeping in scope, The Pesthouse is at once an intimate story of characters whose lives have been uprooted, and a gripping story of danger and misadventure.

From the Hardcover edition.
