The Long Tomorrow review ☆ 103 Leigh Brackett × 3 read & download Forbidden radio sets out on a long road During this journey he will change his mind many times before determining the correct direction for himself and the benighted America in which he live. Every once in a while you visit a used bookstore and happen across a forgotten classic In May I drove through the little town of Kinsman Ohio on my way to Pymatuning to sit in a cabin and finish a novel that won t be published for some time A used bookstore has slowly eaten away most of the other businesses in town and now occupies several storefronts around a convenience storesoda stand Near the register I noticed a shelf devoted to an author I d never heard of Turns out Leigh Brackett is a local legend a woman from California who moved there with her husband and wrote scifi novels in a house down the streetBrackett I learned also wrote several screenplays Big stuff Rio Bravo The Big Sleep And the first draft of The Empire Strikes Back I picked The Long Tomorrow up because I thought this was such a beautiful coverI m glad I did The book is just wonderful classic scifi It begins in Pymatuning 100 years after a nuclear war has destroyed every city on earth In Brackett s world it s the Amish and Mennonites who survive the apocalypse One day a precocious boy Len and his cousin Esau come across a radio a forbidden piece of technology that may have come from the last remaining city The object kicks off the adventure as Len and Esau set out into the territories in search of the truthLike all good sci fi the story is compelling even as the bigger themes develop in the writing Visit a used bookstore and get a copy for yourself

The Long Tomorrow review ☆ 103 Leigh Brackett × 3 read & download Two generations after destruction rained down upon America's cities the population is scattered into small towns Cities are forbidden by law as is scientific research Rumors abound of a secr. A terrible scourge came onto this world Those of us who survived it have labored and fought and sweat for two generations to recover from it Now we re prosperous and at peace and nobody wants that scourge to come back When we find men who seem to carry the seeds of it we take steps against them according to our different ways And some ways are violent That uote explains the basic concept of The Long Tomorrow pretty well This book published in 1955 is something of a minor classic it was a Hugo Award nominee in 1956 did not win The excellent Jo Walton describes it as an American pastoral apocalypse novel It is uite an interesting setting The cities have been bombarded to kingdom come by nuclear bombs but in the aftermath the US landscape still seems to be in pretty good shape Outside the cities farms are thriving food is plentiful so no Hunger Games and humanity seems to be in pretty good shape The year of the narrative s setting is not indicated the events take place about a generation later which would be 50 to 80 years I suppose By this time technology is outlawed and viewed as the evil root cause of the apocalypseThe book begins with this uote from the Thirtieth Amendment No city no town no community of than one thousand people or two hundred buildings to the suare mile shall be built or permitted to exist anywhere in the United States of America So people generally live in little towns or villages controlled by religious sects like the New Mennonite the New Ishmaelites and the Amish not new for some reason These are the sects that normally have little to do with technology and live out outside cities so they flourish in this new world Unfortunately all the ruling religious sects seem to have a Luddite like intolerance for technology and scientific knowledge Early in the book a man is stoned to death for being from the mythical Bartorstown where technology is believed to be in use The narrative is told entirely from the point of view of Len Colter who is 14 years old at the beginning of the book and probably around 17 or 18 by the end Len has a thirst for knowledge and runs away from his hometown together with his cousin Esau in search of science and a better way of lifeThe post apocalypse world of The Long Tomorrow is refreshingly different from the depressing landscape of other books in this genre like The Road The Hunger Games etc I am not sure what Leigh Brackett s stance on cities the modern life and technology is An older character s description of cities is elouently unfavorable The cities were sucking all the life of the country into themselves and destroying it Men were no longer individuals but units in a vast machine all cut to one pattern with the same tastes and ideas the same mass produced education that did not educate but only pasted a veneer of catchwords over ignorance Life in the pastoral communities on the other hand is depicted as peaceful except for the occasional stoning arson and hanging of individuals who try to introduce any form of progress However later on in the novel one of the wiser characters admit that progress is inevitable knowledge cannot be destroyed and cities will eventually return The best that can be hoped for is that humanity will have learned not to go down the same path toward destructionBesides being a cautionary tale The Long Tomorrow is also a bildungsroman charting the protagonist s growth from a boy who is dissatisfied with the simple pastoral life to a man who is very much changed by the things he has seen in his travels The science in the books is rather dated especially where computers are concerned Stylistically the early parts of the book remind me of both Mark Twain and Ray Bradbury especially in the early chapter where Len and his cousin Esau are sneaking about However there is a shift to a darker tone in the second half of the book The ending seems a little abrupt and inconclusive I am not sure what Len and us the readers are supposed to learn from all that has transpired In any case The Long Tomorrow is an immensely readable thought provoking book without a dull moment I certainly prefer it to the currently popular YA teens save the world dystopian fictionuotes Megalopolis drowned in its own sewage choked with its own waste gases smothered and crushed by its own population Could you give up all the mystery and wonder of the world Could you never see it and never want to see it Could you stop the waiting hoping eagerness to hear a voice from nowhere out of a little suare box A thing once known always comes back

By all accounts I ve read Brackett s 1955 novel is the first post nuclear holocaust novel written in the US It takes place around a century after what survivors call The Destruction Cities across the globe were bomb targets and they now exist as unvisited ruins demonized as the symbol of the hubris that brought about the attacks Brackett s brilliant and genuinely creepy innovation although I guess it s not really an innovation if it is the first book of what is now a well worked genre is to create a society not unlike mid 19th century America but where Mennonites control the government the religion and the ideologyMennonitesApparently after The Destruction they along with the Amish and whatever Shakers and like groups were still around proved best suited to a life without technology Their uaint ways are suddenly in great demand and through means Brackett never fully explains their simple fundamentalist faith rules most of the spiritually defeated and technophobic United States and it has no surprise hardened into an ideology that is not above stoning to death those they find threatening or burning to the ground towns that threaten to grow too large or introduce to many innovations Doesn t seem l like a fair accommodation just for all the great jams and pies they bake or that cool pegged furnitureThe New Mennonites are also firm believers in Spare the rod spoil the child a practice that keeps most youth contained but goes against the grain of our young heros Len Coulter and his cousin Esau They discover a short band radio that proves the existence of the fabled city of Bartorstown which they imagine to be a thriving mid twentieth century American metropolis The long journey of their title is their flight from home and many years uest for this technological utopiaThis is SF filtered through Mark Twain and Frank Norris filled with small town types entrepreneurs dangerous townsfolk and mysterious strangers And it all works If many of scenes play out like those of early TV westerns there s a good reason for thatFor years I thought Leigh Brackett was a man who wrote western screenplays for Howard Hawks and that there was some other Leigh Brackett who wrote 1940 s SF of the planet hopping space opera variety back when Venus as a jungle and Mars a habitable desert At some point I learned they were not only the same person but a woman Despite this SF background her first novel was a hardboiled detective story that caught the eye of Howard Hawks He brought her to Hollywood to help William Faulkner with the famously troubled and outrageously convoluted script for The Big Sleep She had both a successful Hollywood career and continued to publish SF George Lucas hired her to write the first draft of The Empire Strikes Back She died of cancer shortly after turning in the script and their continues to be discussion over whether any of her material was used by Lawrence Kasdan in the final screenplayMuch os Leigh Brackett remains in print but the packaging of the anthologies have too much Buck Rogers about them to tempt me But I did read that she is the Poetess of the Pulps I might have to lay aside my prejudices and have a go at something like Enchantress of Venus
