Through the lens of one American woman’s life, acclaimed author Lydia Kiesling shines a light on how individual complicity in capitalism has helped fuel the global environmental crisis. Beginning in 1998 and stretching across decades, Mobility follows protagonist Bunny Glenn as she navigates politics, relationships, and the banality of corporate greed, from her teenage years living in Azerbaijan with her family through her rise in the oil industry to what Kiesling refers to as a “doom-filled futurecast.” This incisive and often funny coming-of-age novel is a profound standout among the growing shelf of literature addressing climate change. —Megan McCluskey
