NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“A stunner.”—Justin Cronin

Now out in paperback!
“It’s never the disasters you see coming that finally come to pass—it’s the ones you don’t expect at all,” says Julia, in this spellbinding novel of catastrophe and survival by a superb new writer. Luminous, suspenseful, unforgettable, The Age of Miracles tells the haunting and beautiful story of Julia and her family as they
struggle to live in a time of extraordinary change.

On an ordinary Saturday in a California suburb, Julia awakes to discover that something has happened to the rotation of the earth. The days and nights are growing longer and longer; gravity is affected; the birds, the tides, human behavior, and cosmic rhythms are thrown into disarray. In a world that seems
filled with danger and loss, Julia also must face surprising developments in herself, and in her
personal world—divisions widening between her parents, strange behavior by her friends, the pain and
vulnerability of first love, a growing sense of isolation, and a surprising, rebellious new strength.

With crystalline prose and the indelible magic of a born storyteller, Karen Thompson Walker gives us a breathtaking portrait of people finding ways to go on in an ever-evolving world.
