William T. Vollmann is the author of ten novels, including EUROPE CENTRAL, which won the National Book Award. He has also written four collections of stories, including THE ATLAS, which won the PEN Center USA West Award for Fiction, a memoir, and six works of nonfiction, including RISING UP AND RISING DOWN and IMPERIAL, both of which were finalists for the National Book Critics Circle Award.

In his nonfiction, William T. Vollmann has won acclaim as a singular voice tackling some of the most important issues of our age, from poverty to violence to the dark soul of American imperialism as it has played out on the U.S./Mexico border. Now, Vollmann turns to a topic that will define the generations to come--the factors and human actions that have led to global warming. Featuring Vollmann's signature wide learning, sardonic wit, and encyclopedic research, No Immediate Danger, whose title co-opts the reassuring mantra of official Japanese energy experts, builds up a powerful, sobering picture of the ongoing nightmare of Fukushima.
