Fortunately for readers, they are reflected in her book on Thomas Jefferson, which is a fine introduction for lay readers to an important, and often daunting, topic.

Smith sets his book in the North Sea on a wind farm of thousands of acres far from the coastline, or what remains of the coastline. In his post-apocalyptic landscape, it is unclear what has happened to Britain, or indeed the rest of the world, as two characters — the Boy and the Old Man — run the farm for a shadowy organisation known only as The Company.
