The comic and provocative novel from the National Book Award-winning author of Going After Cacciato. Set in the near future, The Nuclear Age is a profound portrait of one man's slightly insane attempt to come to terms with The Bomb.
If you need help trying to figure out what the novel makes reference to then you shouldn't be reading it, anyone who's taken a history course would have no difficulty with the matter...
It does tend to get a bit repetitive but since it's told from a first person narrative it's obvious that it's done intentionally and overall the writing style is easy to adjust to.
Reading this book is a lot more meaningful when you consider the world around you. It should definitely bring out the thinker in all those who read it.
