It’s the End of the World, and We Love It.
Why do authors and readers keep revisiting the end of the world? What does our fascination with novels like The Road and The Hunger Games reveal about us? In a wide-ranging discussion with Dr Louisa Yates, Visiting Writing Fellow Francesca Haig will reflect on the enduring appeal of post-apocalyptic fiction, from the point of view of both a novelist and an academic.
Francesca‘s post-apocalyptic novel, The Fire Sermon, was published in 2015 by HarperVoyager (UK), with two sequels to follow. The series is being translated into more than 25 languages.
