Wilder’s groundbreaking, Pulitzer Prize-winning satire is a wild and raucous tour of humanity through the ages. George Antrobus (inventor of the wheel), his devoted family, and his saucy maid find themselves facing one spectacular disaster after another - climate change, war, flood, famine, and economic collapse. From wooly mammoths to an Atlantic City beauty contest to the aftermath of global war, extinction and survival race to the finish line in a joyous, inspiring, and spectacular celebration of humanity's resilience. Wildly entertaining, this American classic is shockingly contemporary and more pertinent than ever before.
