Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake. Their closest neighbors are more than two miles in either direction along a rutted dirt road. One afternoon, as Wen plays in the front yard, strangers appear brandishing menacing objects, leveling an impossible burden against her; the young girl is indispensable in “saving the world.” Thus begins an unbearably tense, gripping tale of paranoia, sacrifice, apocalypse and survival that escalates to a shattering conclusion, one in which the fate of a loving family and quite possibly all of humanity are entwined. Paul Tremblay appears in conversation with Laird Barron, Nadia Bulkin, Livia Llewellyn and John Langan.
“A tremendous book ― thought-provoking and terrifying, with tension that winds up like a chain. The Cabin at the End of the World is Tremblay’s personal best. It’s that good.”
— Stephen King
