Kimberly’s July Recommendation

the dog stars“This post-apocalyptic novel contains both scenes of violence and moving tenderness.   Hig has survived some kind of world-wide pandemic and carries on in Colorado with his beloved dog and his vintage airplane.  For me, Hig embodies the American pioneering spirit.   The author’s  poetic style, his powers of description particularly of the natural world, and the humanity and complexity of the characters kept me enthralled.” – Kimberly
“A pilot survives a flu that kills everyone he knows. When a random transmission beams through his radio, the voice ignites a hope deep inside him. He follows the static voice on the radio, but what he encounters is both better and worse than anything he could have hoped for.” – Summary
