Nuclear AgeNuclear Age - Novel, Tim O'Brien

This novel takes a look at how you would live your life if you were always cognizant of, and worried by, the threat of extinction in a nuclear war. O'Brien treats this subject very seriously, but the book is written in a comic style. It was written in 1985, but it comes out of a Cold War sensibility.
