Novelist Barbara Kingsolver has long combined the personal and the political in her writing. Her books weave the intimate stories of her characters’ lives into a backdrop of social commentary.
Kingsolver’s latest work, “Unsheltered,” is no different. In it she asks the question: what does it feel like to live through the end of the world as you know it, when everything you believe to be true is upended?
