Twenty years later Kirsten, an actress in the Travelling Symphony, performs Shakespeare in the settlements that have grown up since the collapse. But then her newly hopeful world is threatened.

If civilization was lost, what would you preserve? And how far would you go to protect it?

Station Eleven

by Emily St. John Mandel

Review by Bel

A rare combination of pacy, gripping narrative and poetic prose. A brilliant celebration of the power of art to elevate humanity. A haunting read – the images will stay with you a long time. One of my all-time favourites, and a great one for book clubs.
