Annotation

Dystopia in the sense that, while there is advanced technology, the world’s economy and environment have collapsed, cities are violent and full of the unemployed, and many have left for other planets. The dystopia is contrasted with the essentially good life of the protagonist, who lives in rural New Mexico, where the author lives, poor but embedded within a spread-out community of friends and neighbors.
