Pulitzer Prize finalist Lydia Millet’s sublime new novel 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.

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.
