Pulitzer Prize finalist Lydia Millet’s sublime new novel—her first since the National Book Award long-listed Sweet Lamb of Heaven—follows a group of twelve eerily mature children on a forced vacation with their families at a sprawling lakeside mansion.

Contemptuous of their parents, who pass their days in a stupor of liquor, drugs, and sex, the children feel neglected and suffocated at the same time. When a destructive storm descends on the summer estate, the group’s ringleaders—including Eve, who narrates the story—decide to run away, leading the younger ones on a dangerous foray into the apocalyptic chaos outside.

As the scenes of devastation begin to mimic events in the dog-eared picture Bible carried around by her beloved little brother, Eve devotes herself to keeping him safe from harm.

A Children’s Bible is a prophetic, heartbreaking story of generational divide—and a haunting vision of what awaits us on the far side of Revelation.

very slow moving repetitive. narrator's voice very monotone did not hold my interest nor did the book. I already know very much about camp hosts as I have been to many state county federal campgrounds and have spoke to many. so I found this a subject I already knew a lot about and was not surprised by this at all. I see people living like this all the time where I live and there are people living in campers there are people with no money and it is the problem that we have in the United States. I feel this book is for people who do not see that the extreme upper middle class and rich who do not know that this exists. and how sad is that.
