Wool by Hugh Howey (2011)
The first in a series of dystopian novellas, Wool is about the sheriff of a large subterranean city called the Silo. People in the Silo can only view the outside world on a screen that shows a live feed from the cameras outside. Since the air outside is toxic, leaving the Silo is a death sentence for the criminals sent out to clean the cameras.
Wool is short, but well-developed. It leaves a lot of questions unanswered, so I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
