In Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven, a bleak post-apocalyptic world is transformed into something beautiful by following a travelling Shakespearean theatre company as they pass through ruined town to town. She explores art, celebrity, fame and leaves the reader with a nostalgia for the world we live in.
