Praise for "Station Eleven"
"A movie star who's decided to pound the boards as King Lear collapses and dies mid-performance, and shortly thereafter civilization collapses and starts dying as well. The narrative then moves between the actor's early career and a journey through the blasted landscape 15 years after the book's opening events. Indie Next darling Mandel breaks out with a major publisher." -- "Library Journal"
""Station Eleven" is the kind of book that speaks to dozens of the readers in me---the Hollywood devotee, the comic book fan, the cult junkie, the love lover, the disaster tourist. It is a brilliant novel, and Emily St. John Mandel is astonishing." -- Emma Straub, author of "The Vacationers "
""Station Eleven" is a firework of a novel. Elegantly constructed and packed with explosive beauty, it's full of life and humanity and the aftershock of memory." -- Lauren Beukes, author of "The Shining Girls"
"Disturbing, inventive and exciting, "Station Eleven" left me wistful for a world where I still live." -- Jessie Burton, author of "The Miniaturist"show more
