A sexual plague leaves its survivors terrified of human contact. The government so fears sensuality that even the Joy of Cooking is banned. Sex is a capital crime. Only the "carnals" - the sexual dissidents of the future - dare speak of love. In this postmodern Eden we meet a feminist physician who speaks only of the past, and her daughter, Emma, who dreams of real butter and rebuilt Subarus and is sick of hearing about life before the plague. Set in a New York besieged by scarcities of every kind, a place of burnt-out buildings, abandoned streets and junk yards, In the Garden of Dead Cars takes Emma on a journey both dangerously criminal and filled with self-discovery.
