Summary Los Angeles, 2009. Arthur is a retired widower in a dystopian society where social services have gone the way of social graces, and another Bush occupies the White House. Forced from his home with only a duck named Joe to accompany him, Arthur embarks on a quest for purpose and community across the urban desert of Los Angeles. Arthur learns that saving the life of this duck may have led to the salvation of his own. In a duck who believes him to be its mother, an old man discovers dignity and the will to live on.
