Satirical and wryly funny, Rodkey’s tale of suburban family dysfunction and the potential onset of the apocalypse is a beautifully constructed blend of waspish wit and warm-hearted character study.

Sometimes all it takes to bring a family together is the possible end of the world

Meet the Altman family.

Fifty-something Dan is struggling to cope with a mid-life career change. MBA-educated wife and mother Jen has dealt with life's disappointments by becoming a closet alcoholic. Seventeen-year-old Chloe is obsessing about getting into the right university and her state tennis semifinals. Fourteen-year-old Max is trying to figure out when he can next sneak a puff on his beloved vape and plotting revenge on the school bully.

They're a normal family with normal problems.

Until, one day, the lights go out.

Mobile phones don't work. Lights, laptops, cars, trains - anything that uses electricity - just stops.

And what happens next will change everything...

Funny and heart-warming, Lights Out in Lincolnwood is the story of one ordinary family and their unexpected adventure of a lifetime
