The Book We're Talking About:
'Station Eleven'
Emily St. John Mandel
~From Huffington Post

The Guardian: "In her much-tipped fourth novel, longlisted last week for a US National Book award, Canadian author Emily St John Mandel makes something subtle and unusual out of elements that have become garishly overfamiliar."

Who wrote it?
Station Eleven is Emily St. John Mandel's fourth novel. She was born in British Columbia, Canada, and studied dance in Toronto. She's a staff writer for The Millions.

Who will read it?
Fans of dystopian stories, speculative fiction, and stories with strong female protagonists.

Opening lines:
"The king stood in the blue light, unmoored. This was act 4 of King Lear, a winter night at the Elgin Theatre in Toronto. Earlier in the evening, three little girls had played a clapping game onstage as the audience entered, childhood versions of Lear's daughters, and now they'd returned as hallucinations in the mad scene."

Notable passage:
"August said that given an infinite number of parallel universes, there had to be one where there had been no pandemic and he'd grown up to be a physicist as planned, or one where there had been a pandemic but the virus had had a subtly different genetic structure, some minuscule variance that rendered it survivable, in any case a universe in which civilization hadn't been so brutally interrupted."
