Golden Age – Jane Smiley

By the time I reached the end of Jane Smiley’s One Hundred Years trilogy, any semblance of a Golden Age was disappearing into the past, fast.

The two (three?) years of near future gazing – the book was published in March 2016 but the Langdon family’s 100 years come to a close in 2019 – seem remarkably prescient.

More than ever, I fear for the society we’re creating and the world we’ll end our days living (surviving?) in.
