Snippet from Stories For Earth:
I don’t always gravitate towards stories like Man, Kind, the debut novel from author C.C. Berke that I recently finished reading. But I really liked this book. As other readers have noted, it reminded me of The Road by Cormac McCarthy and Mad Max: Fury Road, but it wasn’t all non-stop action. You’ll also find a lot of tenderness, themes of ecofeminism, and yes, some solid and alarming information about the ways our actions impact the environment.
For this reason, it’s no surprise to me that Man, Kind recently won the Literary Titan Gold Book Award. Chris (C.C. Berke) is a burgeoning talent, and I had a great time talking with him about his novel. I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did.
