It is the year 2025. Global warming is a reality. The biosphere has collapsed and most mammals - not to mention fish, birds, and frogs - are extinct. Tyrone Tierwater is eking out a bleak living in southern California, managing a pop star's private menagerie - scruffy hyenas, jackals, warthogs, and three lions. It wasn't always like this for Ty. Once he was a passionate environmentalist, so committed to saving the earth that he became an eco-terrorist, and, ultimately, a convicted felon. As a member of the radical group Earth Forever!, he unwittingly endangered both his daughter Sierra and his wife Andrea. Now, just when he's trying to survive in a world torn by obdurate storms and winnowing drought, Andrea comes back into his life. T.C. Boyle's eighth novel blends idealism and satire in a story that addresses the ultimate questions of human love and the survival of the species.
