The Witch of Hebron Readings

James Howard Kunstler Reads from The Witch of Hebron



In the not-distant future...

First gasoline became scarce and expensive, and now it is simply gone. The automobile age is over. The electricity has flickered out. The computers are all down for good. The great corporations have fallen. Paper money is worthless. Two great cities have been destroyed. Epidemics have ravaged the population. The government isn't functioning. There may be a president and he may be in Minneapolis, but it's little more than a rumor.

The people of a little town named Union Grove , in Upstate New York, endure, living very locally in a world made by hand.

The world beyond Washington County has become an unknown country.
