The Marigold
June 9, 2024 5:04 AM - Subscribe

Set in the near future of a climate change ravaged Toronto, The Marigold is pretty damned good eco-horror.

This book lambastes the rich, all those shiny condo towers, surveillance culture, and of course, raccoons.

I just finished it and I'd say it's very worth picking up (or checking out from your library).

I haven't read this, but the description sounds intriguing enough that I've alerted the lead of our post-apocalyptic fiction book club.

I also read one review that called it "a Cronenberg take on The Bonfire Of The Vanities" and that sounds intriguing as ALL hell.

Yeah, the author said his influences were J.G. Ballard's High-Rise and Cronenberg. It's a good read and would be a good fit for your club. I just sent him a DM on BlueSky telling him that I really enjoyed it and look forward to his future work. (He also posts adorable pics of his doggo on Blue Sky.)
