National Book Award finalist, New York Times bestseller, Globe and Mail bestseller, and a Best Book of the Year in The Globe and Mail, The Washington Post, Entertainment Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, and Time magazine

Day One

The Georgia Flu explodes over the surface of the earth like a neutron bomb. News reports put the mortality rate at over 99%.

Week Two

Civilization has crumbled.

Year Twenty

A band of actors and musicians, called the Travelling Symphony, move through the territories of a changed world, performing concerts and Shakespeare at the settlements that have formed. Twenty years after the pandemic, life feels relatively safe. But now a new danger looms, and it threatens the world every hopeful survivor has tried to rebuild.

Moving backward and forward in time, from the glittering years just before the collapse to the strange and altered world that exists twenty years after, Station Eleven charts the unexpected twists of fate that connect six people: celebrated actor Arthur Leander; Jeevan, a bystander warned about the flu just in time; Arthur's first wife, Miranda; Arthur's oldest friend, Clark; Kirsten, an actress with the Travelling Symphony; and the mysterious and self-proclaimed "prophet."

Sometimes terrifying, sometimes tender, Station Eleven tells a story about the fragility of life, the relationships that sustain us, and the beauty of the world as we know it.

Reviews-
  • George R. R. Martin Deeply melancholy, but beautifully written, and wonderfully elegiac. . . . A book that I will long remember, and return to.
  • Ann Patchett Station Eleven is so compelling, so fearlessly imagined, that I wouldn't have put it down for anything.
  • The Globe and Mail A novel that carries a magnificent depth. . . . It's a sweeping look at where we are, how we got here and where we might go. While her previous novels are cracking good reads, this is her best yet.
  • National Post Gracefully written and suspenseful. . . . Its evocation of the collapse of our civilization is powerful.
  • The New Yorker It's hard to imagine a novel more perfectly suited, in both form and content, to this literary moment.
