The first thing that stood out to me about this book was the importance of its Madison setting. The name-dropping of streets, bars, and nearby towns might annoy, unless you live (or have lived) in Madison (in which case, you might enjoy it even more!). Set in the near future, it explores the possible implications of an energy crisis. But really it's about the people, most of whom are roommates at a sustainable-foods co-op. Although the plot only covers a few days, you'll learn histories and memories in very natural flash-backs. Only 3 stars because I found the focus on the alcoholic of the group, and his alcoholism, a bit excessive.
