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.
