A San Francisco Chronicle and Atlantic Monthly Best Book of the Year"Extraordinary. . . . One of those books that makes you happy for literature." --Junot Diaz, The Wall Street Journal "This end-of-the-world novel [is] more like a rapturous beginning. . . . Remarkable." --San Francisco Chronicle "For all those who thought Cormac McCarthy's The Road the last word on the post-apocalyptic world--think again. . . . Make time and space for this savage, tender, brilliant book." --Glen Duncan, author of The Last Werewolf "Heart-wrenching and richly written. . . . The Dog Stars is a love story, but not just in the typical sense. It's an ode to friendship between two men, a story of the strong bond between a human and a dog, and a reminder of what is worth living for." --Minneapolis Star-Tribune "A dreamy, postapocalyptic love letter to things of beauty, big and small." -Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl
A novel about the end of the world which makes you happy to be alive
