Barry Lyga - After the Red Rain
The past few weeks have been pretty hot – in the high 90’s, so imagine if that’s how it was all year round, and if the air was so bad, you had to wear a mask most of the time, and the government rationed the amount of water, clean air filtered into your home, and food you ate. In Barry Lyga, Peter Facinelli, and Robert DeFranco’s After the Red Rain it’s like that, and more. There are no trees for shade, no flowers, or wild animals – it’s a barren wasteland full of people. Katie Britton spoke with Barry Lyga about this post-apocalyptic novel, and how the writing process worked with three authors.
