THE “NO STRINGS ATTACHED BOOK CLUB”
SPONSORED BY THE SOCIAL COMMITTEE OF THE PTOS

"The Mandibles, A Family, 2029-2047" by Lionel Shriver

“Of course, it's fiction. Lionel Shriver's new novel, The Mandibles, chronicles the pressure on a once well-to-do family as they try to survive in the uncertain future. It's 2029; the U.S. economy has tanked, the dollar is worthless, inflation is rampant — and the wall between the U.S. and Mexico is meant to keep impoverished Americans north of the border. The Mandible family loses their fortune after the 2029 crash. They plummet from the relative luxuries of the upper middle class to a small Brooklyn townhouse where four generations of the family must crouch together, enduring a life of hardship, drudgery, and eventually, violence. It's a dystopia with a side of economic theory” (Weekend Edition Sunday, NPR).
