A National Book Award FinalistA PEN/Faulkner Award Finalist Kirsten Raymonde will never forget the night Arthur Leander, the famous Hollywood actor, had a heart attack on stage during a production of King Lear. That was the night when a devastating flu pandemic arrived in the city, and within weeks, civilization as we know it came to an end. Twenty years later, Kirsten moves between the settlements of the altered world with a small troupe of actors and musicians. They call themselves The Traveling Symphony, and they have dedicated themselves to keeping the remnants of art and humanity alive. But when they arrive in St. Deborah by the Water, they encounter a violent prophet who will threaten the tiny band’s existence. And as the story takes off, moving back and forth in time, and vividly depicting life before and after the pandemic, the strange twist of fate that connects them all will be revealed.

My immune system is not only totally sucky, it’s also highly suggestible. Apparently. I was hoping to love this more than I did. Literary doomsday novels are possibly my...

5.0 Station Eleven: A novel
Second time through this one, this time on audiobook. I still love it to bits. I think the underlying stories about how even at the end of everything art matters (and that art can be Shakespeare or Star Trek or graphic novels or museum exhibits or newspapers), and that what legacy you'll leave, what...

4.0 Survival Is Insufficient
Well having a week off has allowed me the time I wouldn't usually have to get through this one. I enjoyed it, it was in parts profound. I enjoyed the focus on the artistic, technological and cultural losses humanity would take in the event of population wipe-out. I think Cormac McCarthy's The Road t...
