“It's an adventure lit by strange myths, brand names, television and smartphone screens, a fable with teeth and claws about animals making new lives amongst the ruins of humanity... S.T. the irrepressible, cursing crow is my new favourite apocalyptic hero.”

- Helen Macdonald

New York Times bestselling author of

H Is for Hawk

"Kira Jane Buxton’s voice is fresh, like a newly dug grave, but so joyful and honest

you’ll laugh out loud, and then check to make sure you haven’t lost an eyeball."

- Jamie Ford

New York Times bestselling author of 

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

“Everything you're hearing about Kira Jane Buxton's Hollow Kingdom--that it's wildly original and inventive, funny and profane--is wonderfully true. But even better, this book is timely, smart, movingly written, and beautifully concluded.”

- Laurie Frankel

New York Times bestselling author of

This Is How It Always Is

“A plucky hero, a boisterous tale, startling prose, and eerie events combine for a thoroughly enjoyable account of the end of the world as we know it. The Secret Life Of Pets meets The Walking Dead.”

- Karen Joy Fowler

recognize the world from that vantage point.”

bonds we’ve formed with our pets might help them save us after all."
