How to Survive Everything
By (author) Ewan Morrison
My name is Haley Cooper Crowe and I am in lockdown in a remote location I can’t tell you about. Haley and Ben live with their mother. But with inside knowledge of a new, deadlier-than-ever pandemic that’s about to overwhelm them, their father is determined to get them to the safety of his secret hideaway … Problem is, there is no way their mother will go along with this plan. When their father kidnaps them and takes them to his prepper compound, they have no contact with the outside world. They’re fully equipped with rations and emergency kit, but they face deeply conflicting views of reality with no reliable source of news. Will they survive, save their mother, deter intruders and keep everyone safe? This is Haley’s account of how to navigate the collapse of society, family and everything she knows.
Reviews of How to Survive Everything
"One of the most provocative, intelligent and original novelists working in Britain today." Irvine Welsh; "Urgent and exciting, harnessing our current global anxiety with a beautifully observed family drama." Atom Egoyan; "Terrifying … a terrifically written thriller that puts a very contemporary dysfunctional family at the heart of a very contemporary dystopian reality." Lynda Obst, Producer of Interstellar; "How To Survive Everything is a gritty and (tragically) cool novel. The collision of a broken family and a global pandemic, it reads as a survival guide and feels like (is) a warning." David Shields
