“The Revivalists is Christopher M. Hood’s debut novel about a couple’s harrowing journey across a ravaged America to save their daughter. Bill and Penelope are the lucky ones. Not only do they survive the Shark Flu emerging from the melting Icelandic permafrost to sweep like a scythe across the world, but they begin to rebuild a life in the wreckage of the old. But when their daughter’s voice over the radio in the kitchen announces that she’s joined a cult three thousand miles away in Bishop, California, they leave it all behind to embark on a perilous trek across the hollowed-out remains of America to save her.”
Christopher M. Hood is the Director of the Creative Writing Program at the Dalton School in New York City and lives near there with his wife and daughter. Christopher graduated from high school here in Maine and went on to receive an MFA in Poetry from UC Irvine. He can be found online at www.christophermhood.com
