Descrizione

The Book of Noah is a post-apocalyptic science fiction dystopian novel, following in the tradition of classic dystopias such as Orwell, Atwood, and Huxley. Taking place both in the near future and five hundred years from now, the book unfolds the parallel storylines of U.S. Attorney General Chris Cordwainer, witnessing America’s polarized politics and horrifying slide into World War III, and Noah, the young High Priest-in-training of the Church of Noah, when the “war to end all wars” and its aftermath have radically transformed the country. Chris and Noah struggle to make sense of their rapidly crumbling worlds, and to find a way to live, love, and be not afraid, even in the middle of the end of everything.

Co-authored by two early-twenties sisters, the novel challenges us to reconsider our perceptions of the world around us, our increasing acceptance of perpetual war as a way of life, and the entrenched notion that there is simply nothing we can do about it. Hilary is an Oxford University-trained scholar and writer with a master’s degree in religion and history, and Gillian is a Columbia University graduate working in Cambodia as a choreographer, helping to rebuild the country’s culture through dance after the oppression of the Khmer Rouge. The Book of Noah is part of their mission to introduce a dialogue about war, love, faith, loss, and hope in the middle of a world filled with uncertainty and instability.
