World Made By Hand

World Made by Hand by James Howard Kunstler

I’ve always liked post-apocalypic stories. I’m one of the few people who really enjoyed both Kevin Cosner films Waterworld and The Postman. Happily, for Chrstimas I recieved James Howard Kunstler’s World Made by Hand, starring post-oil (and therefore), post-automobile, (and therefore), post-suburban America.

Those familiar with Kunstler’s non-fiction won’t be surprised by his not-so-well hidden joy as he describes an America devoid of strip malls, interstate highways, and fast food. World Made by Hand is a good story in and of itself; that it is also an indictment of our materialist-driven, cheap-oil-enabled lifestyle is an added bonus.
