This is a hard book to review, because while I quite enjoyed the journey, at the end I have realised that I don’t really get it. Is it too clever, too abstract, too modern? I’m not sure. It is set in a near, dystopian future where the south west of the US has long been in drought and taken over by sand. A couple who have been coasting, find something that gives them purpose and need to find a place to settle. It’s bleak, sometimes beautiful, trippy, twisted and oddly compelling. One for lovers of language, and journeys far more important than the destination.
