The End of the Day

***SHORTLISTED FOR THE SUNDAY TIMES / PFD YOUNG WRITER OF THE YEAR AWARD 2017***

Sooner or later, death visits everyone. Before that, they meet Charlie.

Charlie meets everyone – but only once. Sometimes he is sent as a courtesy, sometimes as a warning. Either way, this is going to be the most important meeting of your life.

The End of the Day is the stunning new story from Claire North, the voice behind the word-of-mouth bestseller The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August.

‘Reaffirms the passion and ambition that have made North such a consistently intriguing writer’ Locus

‘Every one of the chapters is shaped with philosophical panache’ Guardian

Extraordinary . . . wildly impressive

The End of the Day is [North's] most ambitious novel . . . Every one of the short 110 chapters is shaped with philosophical panache
GUARDIAN
Funny, ambitious, immensely humane and full of philosophical panache
SUNDAY TIMES
An exciting voice in contemporary fantasy . . . North adroitly sets the scenes and enlivens them with compelling, ironic dialogue, and she keeps the surprises coming until the very end
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
A beautiful, if occasionally uncomfortable, read that resists being labeled with any particular genre
