Station Eleven

Station Eleven, by Emily St John Mandel

I go through periods when I don’t read much fiction, and the few years before the pandemic was one of them. When rumors about Covid first started swirling, a friend of mine told me that it all reminded her of this book. Perhaps unwisely, I ordered it. Reading this book for the first time right at that moment heightened the fear around the disease that wipes out most of humanity, but that art and music are forces that keep us going gave me great hope.

If you haven’t read this finalist for the National Book Award finalist yet, do, and then pick up every single book that she has written, because they are all exquisite.
