After the Apocalypse

What happens to a book reviewer after the apocalypse? 

The Read by Keir Graff

“In the dream he knelt beside a vast and craven crater.  The crater filled with bookwrack.  Boards.  Paper.  Words.  The words unadhorn from the pages and falling to letters.  Broken bookshelves.  Card catalogs filled with dust.  That not burned had been drowned.  Stewy char.  The shorelaps of the polluted waters a sickly susurrus.  The world come unbooked and never to be read again…”
