Mandel, Emily St. John. Station Eleven. 2014. New York: Vintage Books, 2015.
I bought this book two days ago at my local Barnes & Noble because I recently read an interesting interview with Mandel in Poets & Writers and then saw a number of people on Twitter saying that Station Eleven describes a situation very similar to our current virus-laden one. I decided it would be worth reading as one way to help conceptualize the current moment, which is unlike anything I have experienced.

I just received an exam copy of this book from the author. Its intersection of BDSM and disability intrigues me because of the role of these two subjects in my own work, so I am considering teaching it in one of my courses.
