Review: CALIFORNIA by Edan Lepucki<br /><br />CALIFORNIA was the 2014 debut novel of author Edan Lepucki. Set in a very near-future Southern and Central California, the novel is Dystopian. It is post-apocalyptic in a sense, but in this case the "end" arrives almost subtly, not with a bang (no nuclear holocaust, North Korean invasion, plague, nor zombie uprising). Instead, civilization just fizzles. The novel goes into some detail about life in L.A. during postmodernity, but primarily concentrates on protagonists Frida and Cal as they make the life-changing decision to move out of the city and homestead on "found land" (emphasis mine).
