“Survival is never sufficient.”
~ Station Eleven, Emily St. John Mandel
Author Emily St. John Mandel may not have known she was predicting the pandemic when she first released her book “Station Eleven” in 2014, but here in the midst of our new reality, the nuances in her dystopian novel have refreshed resonance in 2020. Unlike most dystopias, there is a thread of optimism in this novel as the society gets a re-do and with virtually nothing, rebuilds with a focus on community, artistic expression while staving off new threats to their utopia.
