Description
"Remarkable... Powerful... Mesmerizing... Lyrical." Susan Cheever Welcome to the America of the 21st century. The O-Zone is a forbidding land of nuclear waste, mutants, and aliens. Except for one place that is a beautiful oasis amidst the destruction. When two aliens are shot that look suspiciously human, Hooper Allbright, disurbed by the memories of those he once loved, goes back down into the O-Zone to try to reach the people he lost, though they may be unreachable by now.... "Smart, witty, grotesque, and brutal." THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
