A hired guide leads his two clients—a writer looking for inspiration and a professor seeking scientific discovery—through a hazardous wasteland and into the heart of the Zone, the restricted site of a long-ago disaster. Within the Zone is the Room: a place rumored to fulfil one’s deepest desires.

A profound post-apocalyptic grail story whose vision of ecological degradation and moral decay remains startlingly prescient.
