Overview

This antiquarian volume comprises Richard Jefferies' early example of post-apocalyptic fiction, 'After London'. After an unspecified disaster depopulates England, a small number of survivors are forced to live in a quasi-medieval fashion in a landscape almost entirely reclaimed by nature. Jefferies' unparalleled skill as a nature writer is obvious in this uncannily prophetic portrayal of a post-apocalyptic England that has been hailed as the most beautiful of all Victorian novels. This text will appeal to those with an interest in early speculative fiction, and it is a veritable must-read for fans and collectors of Jefferies' wonderful literature. We are republishing this vintage book now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

This is a nice little post apocalyptic novel. The ending was very open - ended though, which may disappoint some readers.

Interesting post apocalyptic fiction. Not the best book you will ever read, but it has its moments and it is an interesting take on life after us.
