Will Patton is a calm and steady narrator whose quiet intensity wraps around this post-apocalyptic saga, written in the midst of the Cold War. In his small town in Florida, Randy gathers together a compound of self-reliant people who struggle to survive and adjust to their new world after a nuclear attack that has wiped out much of civilization. As Patton recounts the stories of some of the survivors, he presents their personalities in the context of the time. He reflects the tones of deference of women to men, nonwhites to whites, and children to adults. In a conversational tone, he quietly brings the characters and their relationships to life.
