This is one funny book. American Neolithic is speculative, dystopian, fiction written in a style that will have you guffawing out loud. If Joseph Heller, Dashiell Hammett and Gene Roddenberry made a baby together it wouldn't come close to what Hawkin ...more

“The mayor was the most dangerous of individuals. He possessed, in equal amounts, unhealthy doses of charm and ambition. He was a driven opportunist.”
Marc Fitten

“And tell your wife whatever you want, but don't make promises you're not going to keep. And don't knock yourself out over it; you didn't invent infidelity.”
Marc Fitten, Valeria's Last Stand

“A man could settle down and still be inspired," he said. "That's all it is. She's a woman who inspires.”
