ECKLEBURG BOOK CLUB | Haw by Sean Jackson

Haw-just-Front-Cover


Mired in a corrupt, dangerous 22nd century city that is on the verge of collapse, a father and son flee to a rural village, hoping to find refuge from their violent lives. What they find is not the haunted hippie environs of local legend, but a gritty farm community that thrives despite the threat of criminal invasions and the ominous presence of a nearby nuclear reactor.
A bioengineer, Lucas lends his expertise to the efforts of sustainability, while his son—a rising young photojournalist—falls in love with one of the sons of a folksy family whose charm lies in its ability to keep the community together, through music and love—until disaster shakes their fragile world.


What People Are Saying about Haw

Haw has been praised by author Mitch Cullin (Tideland, A Slight Trick of the Mind) as a potentially seminal work in contemporary American fiction. Cullin celebrated Haw as “a sort of Brave New World for modern times, updated with Jackson’s expansive, unique vision of a world bordering on collapse, but not yet devoid of hope. The unique imagery and characters summoned in Haw is equal parts moving, funny, irreverent, timely, and verging on sheer brilliance. I relished every moment of it.”

“Jackson reminds us that the apocalypse isn’t just kid stuff. Its long literary tradition traces smoking wreckage from Brave New World to The Road, and it’s in this line that Haw falls.” –Brian Howe, IndyWeek

“There is some drama to Haw, but what I liked most about it was its quiet.” — Michelle Fost
