Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank

This novel Alas, Babylon was published in 1959 at the height of the Cold War, and all of the fear and anxieties about the possibility of World War III are certainly reflected in this story. It takes place in a small city in Florida, one of the few places to have survivors after hydrogen bombs are dropped all over the United States. It is the story of what lengths people will go to survive, as well as a story of love, friendship, and hope. A true classic!
