The Great Transition, by Nick Fuller Googins

Staff Pick

Googins's wonderfully written and propulsive speculative fiction/thriller debut is set in a near future when humanity--through a host of New Deal measures--has managed to bring emissions down to zero. But as he shows us what this new world might look like, questions persist: how did we come together and solve the crisis? And could we forgive and forget and move on--or are we at risk of being torn apart once more? We watch the tensions play out in the lives of one family; heroes during the Great Transition, they're now struggling to move forward and give up the fight.
