When war breaks out in Europe—modern, aerial war whose tactics include displacing entire populations—British civilization collapses overnight. The ironically named Theodore Savage, an educated and idle civil servant, must learn to survive by his wits in a new Britain—one where science and technology swiftly come to be regarded with superstitious awe and terror.

Editorial Reviews

Theodore Savage is a dark, strange, and cruelly contemporary tale…The book makes a spirited argument against science and machines, disputing itself viciously to the last word.”

Atlantic

“Miss Hamilton always writes forcibly, and her present novel deals with the heart shaking effects of the next war. It might, indeed, be used as a tract to convey an awful warning.”

Spectator
