I read a book back in college about a post-nuclear war time where the U.S. was compeletely wiped out. When people came to visit the U.S. from Europe, they found nomadic people living in groups, based upon their orginal professions. The only group I can remember the name of was the "suits" (I think). Anyway, the novel was a commentary not only on Nuclear war, but also on society itself.

If anyone knows the title of this book, I'd really appreciate your help.

Hi Zippy02,

The book sounds like Hello America by JG (James Graham) Ballard. I read this book years ago and can't remember many details but it sounds like it. Have a look at the other thread on JG Ballard.

Yup, it's Hello, America!

Zippy-I read the book in college too, for my sceince fiction literature class.

Funny, I brought this book up in the JG Ballard topic below.
