Afterland (Hardback)Lauren Beukes (author)
- Coming soon
The addictive new thriller from the author of Zoo City, winner of the Arthur C Clarke Award!
'A major, major talent' George R. R. Martin
They'll call her a bad mother.
Cole can live with that. Because when she breaks her son Miles out of the Male Protection Facility - designed to prevent him joining the 99% of men wiped off the face of the Earth - she's not just taking him back.
She's setting him free.
Leaving Miles in America would leave him as a lab experiment; a pawn in the hands of people who now see him as a treasure to be guarded, traded, and used. What kind of mother would stand by and watch her child suffer? But as their journey to freedom takes them across a hostile and changed country, freedom seems ever more impossible.
It's time for Cole to prove just how far she'll go to protect her son.
