Station Eleven
Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel (Science Fiction/Fantasy)
On the same snowy night that actor Arthur Leander collapses onstage during a production of "King Lear," a virulent strain of influenza arrives in North America. Within a matter of weeks, the planet's population has been decimated. Years later Kirsten, an actress who as a child performed in that same ill-fated production, is a member of a travelling band of performers, journeying between the isolated settlements that are all that remains of human habitation. This vivid, thought-provoking novel, which could be a good selection for book groups, would appeal to readers who enjoyed Karen Thompson Walker's "The Age of Miracles." -- Added by ChristyAV on 02/05/2015
