We didn't reverse climate change. The world is a barren husk of what it once was. And yet, humanity persists. Traveling between towns, villages, and cities, a circus cuts through Europe, delivering entertainment. But much there is a darker reality to this circus, and their trek to Asia is either hopeless venture or will be the spark of a new humanity.
That's what Ben Marshall's novel, The Last Circus on Earth, deals with. That and so much more. In this episode, Ben joins me from Tasmania to discuss this gem of a post-apocalyptic novel that is both dark and hopeful--and positively hilarious at times. It also steers clear of the nihilistic trappings common to this subgenre.
