An audacious collaboration between an award-winning novelist and a leading environmental philosopher, Love in the Anthropocene taps into one of the hottest topics of the day, literally and figuratively--our corrupted environment--to deliver five related stories ("Flyfishing," "Carbon," "Holiday," "Shanghai," and "Zoo") that investigate a future bereft of natural environments, introduced with a discussion on the Anthropocene--the Age of Humanity--and concluding with an essay on love.

The "love" these writer/philosophers investigate and celebrate is as much a constant as is human despoliation of the planet; it is what defines us, and it is what may save us. Science fiction, literary fiction, philosophical meditation, manifesto? All the above. This unique work is destined to become an essential companion--a primer, really--to life in the 21st century.
