‘Station 11’ – Emily St. John Mandel

Lausanne, August 2015

Synopsis

The one where Arthur dies in King Lear and Jevan tries to resuscitate him while a girl called Kirsten cries. Then the majority of civilisation is wiped out by a flu. Follow the stage group to a new town where a prophet is bad. The story works back and forth around a comic entitled ‘Station 11’. The group makes their way to the Museum of Civilisation.

Thoughts

A great story that didn’t beg the reader’s attention to notice the writer. Really interesting use of the comic, Station 11. There are two copies given and the individuals holding them use them to different ends – one sees it as a tool for survival, the other to encourage fundamentalism.
