Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"Like Colson Whitehead's Zone One without the zombie camp and idiom, Theodore Savage is a dark, strange, and cruelly contemporary tale of The Ruin and the post-apocalyptic condition that follows. The book makes a spirited argument against science and machines, disputing itself viciously to the last word." (Alexis Madrigal, The 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." ( The Spectator -1922)
"A particularly effective and chilling version of a theme that dominates British speculative fiction between the wars." ( Anatomy of Wonder, Neil Barron, ed.)
