Sherwood Nation: A Novel

by Benjamin Parzybok

In a drought-stricken Portland, Oregon, a Robin Hood-esque water thief is caught on camera redistributing an illegal truckload of water to citizens in need. Nicknamed Maid Marian—real name: Renee, a twenty-something barista and eternal part-time student—she is an instant folk hero. Renee rides her swelling popularity and the public's disgust at how the city has abandoned its people to raise an army . . . and secede a quarter of the city.
