Writers Who Read

Gary, Whitney, and Mira analyze another recently-published novel on the next episode of Writers Who Read. Next up: Birnam Wood by Eleanor Catton.

Eco-ravaging for profit and the technology of the surveillance state are a few of the mechanisms that keep the ultra-rich in control. A multi-billionaire buys a plot of land in New Zealand and builds a bunker so he can survive the end times, which he has brought on himself. How much power does a fledgling group of environmentalists have against this combination of wealth and influence, especially when the billionaire himself starts funding their work?
