Emily St. John Mandel

Emily St. John Mandel is the author of four novels, most recently Station Eleven, which was a finalist for a National Book Award and the PEN/Faulkner Award, and won the 2015 Arthur C. Clarke Award. Set in the present day and in a post-apocalyptic North America, the story is what Mandel herself calls "a love letter to this extraordinary world in which we live."
