Indies Introduce


  • The End We Start From, Megan Hunter
    Atlantic Monthly Press, 9780802126894, November 7, 2017 (Fiction)

    “I loved this slim, beautiful book. Megan Hunter’s sparse prose makes it one of the most affecting and poetic novels about the end of the world and beyond. Despite being a dystopian novel, it is hopeful. Perhaps the end is not the end.”

    Anton Bogomazov, Politics & Prose (Washington, DC)

    "The end of the world told through the eyes of a mother attempting to run away from the madness of the world, while her husband has disappeared. Lyrical and beautiful--a must read."

    Jason Kennedy, Boswell Book Company (Milwaukee, WI)

    "An apocalyptic flood ravages London at the near-moment our unnamed narrator gives birth to her son and leads to the loss of normalcy for the survivors forever. In language that is spare but never simple, Megan Hunter writes of the protagonist’s journey as she and her family try to survive and retain their humanity under the most devastating of circumstances. The way that civilization devolves into terror and brutality are all-too-believable, while there remain glimmers of kindness and grace between the people ravaged by the flood. The finely chosen details and perfectly evocative phrases that fill this book made me ache."

    Jamie Thomas, Women & Children First (Chicago, IL)
