Emily St. John Mandel
Station Eleven
My new novel is about a traveling Shakespearean theatre company/orchestra in a post-apocalyptic North America. It's also about our obsession with objects, celebrity, memory, friendship, oppressive dinner parties, comic books, and knife-throwing. It will be published in September 2014 by Knopf (US), HarperCollins (Canada), and Picador (UK), with publication to follow in several other countries. That's the UK cover on the left, designed by the extremely talented Nathan Burton.
More details soon. In the meantime, here's the Knopf catalogue copy, you can pre-order a signed copy here, and there's also a sproadically-updated Tumblr and other books to look at.
