'A terrific novel.' Nick Hornby, Guardian Books of the Year Kate and Albert, sister and brother, are not yet the last two human beings on earth, but Albert has high hopes. The secluded communal farm they grew up on is - after twenty years - disintegrating, along with their parents' marriage. They both try to escape- Kate, at seventeen, to suburbia and Albert, at eleven, into preparations for the end of the world. However, Don, their father and the community's leader, is convinced he can save everything, if he can only he can bring his followers into the modern age. How? By force of personality, strict self-sufficiency and a rave with a 10k sound system. Understandably, Albert and Kate have other ideas . . . 'An engaging, emotionally stimulating, chuckle-out-loud read.' Time Out 'Occupying a terrain that lies between the very British humour of Jonathan Coe and the zeitgeisty ambition of Douglas Coupland . . . insightful comic writing . . . that manages to be both tender and biting.' Independent on Sunday 'A creation of some genius. Dunthorne is a naturally comic writer.' Daily Telegraph 'Just as funny and acutely perceptive as Submarine.' Independent
