The Wrong Direction

November 29, 1987

Richard Eder comments (The Book Review, Nov. 1) that in "Riddley Walker," Russell Hoban "made an astonishing flight into the minds and speech of prehistoric humans." Make that post-historic. "Riddley Walker" deals with far-in-the-future survivors of a nuclear holocaust that has nearly obliterated the history and artifacts of our civilization.
