In the Era of Acid Rain is a travel book. Like all travel books it is a work of fiction. Actual places and characters are seen through the eyes of imagination and dream. Fiction and actuality interact. Times, places and contexts shift and reform. The narrator reverses our expectations and ordinary fictional strategies. Real people interact with fictional beings in fictional situations in real places.
Ultimately, In the Era of Acid Rain is a fiction about change, about politics, environment, and the search for union. It is a book about our time, its crises and contradictions.
