The End We Start From - Megan Hunter

Staff Pick

Most depictions of the apocalypse in pop culture follow a certain motif: a kinetic and action-packed narrative featuring a hyper-masculine protagonist. Megan Hunter's The End We Start From does not follow that motif. The novel instead features a strong female protagonist who just gave birth just as the oceans begins to engulf most of England and her quest to find a safe place for her newborn son. Told in disjointed vignettes reminiscent of Joan Didion, The End We Start From is a ruminative novel about the hardships a mother would endure to ensure the survival of her child.
