I read this a couple weeks ago and forgot to add it. This is a book and its sequel which are now classics (published in 1993) but There was supposed to be a third book but it never happened. Anyway, I never got to these although I read a couple of other books by her. It’s also dystopian and includes some climate change.
The Parable of the Talents
by Octavia Butler

Rating: B+/ dystopian
It’s a lot like The Handmaid’s Tale (Margaret Atwood – 1985) in that the Christian Evangelicals of Reagan’s time have enormous power while the president uses “Make America Great Again” as his slogan (yah? – prescient). Here the wealth gap is also important but chaos seems to reign more than anything.
