Joy Williams: Post-Apocalyptic Rage and Revenge

In Joy Williams’s Harrow, Khristen’s life falls apart when her boarding school closes, her mother disappears and her future is thrust into the unknown. In a dead resort, she finds a network of elders planning to punish those who’ve destroyed the natural world and the future of the children. In this conversation with Chris Power, Pulitzer Prize-finalist Williams takes us to a world after environmental collapse to ask whether you can ever recover a paradise lost.
