A Friend of the Earth [9781526608918]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
An ecological black comedy and provocative modern morality tale; 'Boyle's prose is so good and his imagination so fertile that after a while you just sit back and are swept along' (Daily Telegraph) It's 2025, and 75-year-old environmentalist Ty Tierwater is eking out a bleak loving managing a pop star's private zoo. It is the last one in southern California and vital for the cloning of its captive species. Once, Ty was so serious about environmental causes that as an eco-terrorist committed to Earth Forever! he endangered the lives of both his daughter, Sierra, and his wife, Andrea. Now, when he's just trying to survive in a world cursed by storm and drought, Andrea returns to his life. Frightening, funny, surreal and gripping, T.C. Boyle's story is both a modern morality tale, and a provocative vision of the future
