5.0 out of 5 stars putting heart and meaning back into apocalypses bled dry after too many tellings., May 21, 2012
This review is from: Cataclysm Baby (The Mud Luscious Press Novel(La)) (Paperback)
Babies born wrong, a world in flames, drowning, drying up, and drifting away - these are the ways the world ends, with terminally hopeful fathers clutching the roles of the past as the future crumbles away. Cataclysm Baby spins these elements around, each chapter presenting a new vision of men trying to hold families together or blow them apart while exhausted wives die or go insane and children are born as insects, as ghosts, as part of a murderous, hostile new world.
Matt Bell's novel is an abecedarium of apocalypse; the title of every chapter is a trio of names, starting with the same letter - the names of the children who should carry humanity into the future and persevere in the face of a host of environmental disasters.
