A compelling gripping as any recent novel, American Purgatory is set in a dystopian near-future United States of environmental degradation and totalitarian rule. Against this backdrop, three unlikely characters, part of a despised working class, begin a journey that will take them from work, belief, and even each other, until the protagonist uncovers a powerful truth about her world and the people in it.
