Description

The #1 International Bestseller! A Science Fiction & Fantasy Book to Keep on Your Radar by io9 and Gizmodo

A fast-paced, literary, dystopian thriller for fans of fiction like Andy Weir's The Martian, Emily St. John Mandel's Station Eleven, and Cormac McCarthy's The Road.

Asteroids are striking Earth, the end of the world is near, and Edgar Hill is on the wrong side of the country.

Over five hundred miles of devastated wastelands stretch between him and his family, and every second counts. His only option is to run--or risk losing everything he loves. He'll have to be ingenious and push himself to the very limit if he wants to see them again. Can he reach them in the race against time, or will the end of the world defeat him?

The End of the World Running Clubis where the beautifully imagined post-apocalyptic world of The Salt Linemeets the deep humanity of A Man Called Ove.

A dystopian page-turner about the endurance of the human body and spirit--perfect for lovers of apocalyptic science fiction, running books, and anyone who knows that true strength comes from love.

Praise for The End of the World Running Club: "Harrowing and heartrending, this is a novel that is almost impossible to put down."--Library Journal "Walker's ability to imagine a post-apocalyptic world in crisp detail is on full display in the early pages of The End of the World Running Club."--Maximum Shelf "...a beautifully written postapocalyptic tale of a flawed man's struggle for survival and redemption."--Booklist
