This week David Yoon is on the podcast to discuss City of Orange, about a man who wakes up in an unknown landscape, injured and alone. Harrowing and haunting but also humorous in the face of the unfathomable, this is a novel about reassembling the things that make us who we are and finding our way home again.
“Very few postapocalyptic novels have the literary qualities of this one. City of Orange belongs in a very narrow category, alongside Emily St. John’s Station Eleven, Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. Like all the best authors in the genre, David Yoon is willing to ask what ‘the End of the World’ really means — and provide the reader with a thoughtful, heartfelt answer.” – San Francisco Chronicle
