Though the Earth Gives Way
Though the Earth Gives Way takes place in the aftermath of catastrophic climate disasters that have triggered a migration from the coasts to the center of the country. Nine strangers meet by chance at an old retreat center in Michigan. Each bears a unique burden of anger, guilt and complicity over the destruction. To scavenge food, they must venture into a hostile landscape of survivors, some frightened, others murderous. What binds the migrants to one another are the food they share and the nightly stories they tell one another. The stories wind up foreshadowing the group’s fate.
