Station Eleven

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel, 333 pages.

I re-read this one for book group this year.
Mandel's award-winning novel joins Colson Whitehead's Zone One in the new-ish category of beautiful and moving post-apocalyptic adventures.
The book opens at a production of King Lear, on the very night the world changes, and then picks up the story Post-A, following a troupe of actors and musicians as they make their way through a dangerous, grim and crazy world. Finely wrought characters, interesting setting, and a good grasp of the story. Well worth the read.
