LA Smith chatted with Helen Little on the Public Library podcast about her novel Fukushima on the Hudson. In this stunning novel, Smith images an alternate reality where a Fukushima-scale nuclear meltdown happens only a few dozen miles from New York City. Fukushima on the Hudson is a fictional, eco-political thriller based on a very real threat to the city of New York and the United States as a whole.
The novel is narrated by three characters, including Kristin Kellogg a dairy farmer from rural New York state that finds herself swept up into a dangerous Washington conspiracy. Kristin teams up with a jaded news reporter to expose the conspiracy. It's also narrated by 62-year-old senator who's also involved in the environmental conspiracy.
