Tribulation: A Novel of the Near Future

Thomas A. Lewis. CreateSpace, $9.95 paper (250p) ISBN 978-1-4947-6845-4
Lewis's winning apocalyptic novel follows the lives of William Trent, a former U.S. president, and his journalist son, Brian. Over the years, Brian has accumulated enough information to be certain that climate change is irrevocably impacting the environment, and that the U.S. is careening toward a certain reckoning. Despite his family's doubts, Brian builds a sustainable compound in West Virginia—and when the reckoning does come, Brian and his family hunker down to ride out the environmental and economic devastation. At the same time, they must confront the world they have lost and work to rebuild a new society. Lewis's novel reflects the realities and dangers of climate change in a way that is deeply disturbing. His narrative—and its apocalyptic scenario—is so deftly constructed that readers will clearly understand the real stakes of climate change and the myriad skills necessary for survival. Thankfully, Lewis is never didactic with his message. Instead, he provides a quickly paced story replete with compelling characters that will stay with readers long after the final page is turned.
