I’m so excited to see Afterland on Goodreads list of the hottest books of summer 2020, in the company of Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia (one of my favourite reads this year!), Death in Her Hands by Ottessa Moshfegh, and The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson.

Here’s what they had to say about Afterland:

A worldwide pandemic has wiped out 99 percent of the world’s male population. Seems like an opportunity for improvement, but maybe not. A desperate mother flees across a dystopian American West, trying desperately to protect her young boy. Billed as a meeting of Blade Runner and The Handmaid’s Tale, Afterland is the latest from acclaimed author Lauren Beukes.

Thanks @myarmchairadventures for the vibrant shot of Afterland and co!
