A Children’s Bible by Lydia Millet


A group of families rent a sprawling lakeside mansion for the summer. Contemptuous of their parents’ behavior, the children increasingly avoid them. After a severe storm descends, the children strike out on their own into the chaotic outer world. This prescient, wry, and beautifully written novel captures the terror of living in a world gone amok.
