The Slynx, by Tatyana Tolstaya

Recent web searches for more apocalyptic literature produced a hit for this book, the Slynx.  While technically it does take place after a nuclear (or some other) blast, it wasn't really what I expected.  That said it was a wonderful book, or at least 3/4 of a wonderful book.  I thought the ending was weak, but it didn't take away from my overall enjoyment.  No doubt part of that was b/c the book was so different from anything I'd expected.  A great find, the kind of book I'd never have known to check out from the library without such a recommendation.
