    Summary:

    "The Towers of Babylon tracks a group of hapless Millennials trying to find meaning in a world that consistently rejects them. What do you do when you have a graduate degree and are stuck working for minimum wage at a bagel shop? Or you've snagged a steady, middle-income job only to find that its plunging you into a moral abyss. Or you've (over)worked your way up into the upper echelons of the finance sector and are trying to shake off depression with brute will. As the novel's four protagonists pinball around Toronto, where real estate prices are hyper-inflated, public infrastructure is crumbling, and climate change is bringing on killer heat and savage storms, they each try to do what is right for the world. Trouble is, none of them can agree on what right means."--
