Science Fiction climate change apocalypse fatherhood survivalist

"The Far Side" cartoonist, Gary Larson, drew an image of a family fleeing a city while a mushroom cloud rises in the distance. Their panic is evident, except their dog has his head out the window, looking at a dog on the sidewalk. Larson says he drew it to illustrate different points of view will not see a situation the same way. I like stories like that. In "Housekeeping," the apocalyptic background isn't the prime concern in the main character's life. Sometimes you just have to be a good dad.
