The New Wilderness, by Diane Cook

Staff Pick

Cook's novel is a virtuoso exploration of humanity's relationship to nature. Set in a futuristic America where the entire population lives in a giant, polluted, smog-ridden city-state, the narrative focuses on Bea,  a young mother hoping to save her sick child, Agnes. Along with 18 others, the pair volunteer to move into the Wilderness State--a vast western territory that has been closed to humans--as nomadic hunter-gatherers. Timely and expansive, Cook's fiction will change the way you see nature.
