Love in the Ruins
Love in the Ruins: The Adventures of a Bad Catholic at a Time Near the End of the World (1971) is a science fiction work by Walker Percy. I enjoyed this take on the-end-of-the-world. -a bit of a different perspective.
The Literature, Arts and Medicine Database calls it "a satire of the limits of technology, the medicalization of the human spirit, and the trivializing tendencies of 20th century medical science".
As I was googling the title I found a Memphis blogger who read it a couple of years before I did. She still actively blogs. She seems to post a lot of book and family-related matters from what i can tell.
