A brilliant, unique, and completely realized work of fiction, “Riddley Walker”—first published in 1980—is set in a remote future in a post-nuclear holocaust England (Inland), where humanity has regressed to an iron-age, semi-literate state, represented by a language created especially by Hoban for the book.
