About the Book and Author

Jeff VanderMeer has been dubbed “the weird Thoreau” by The New Yorker. His latest novel, Dead Astronauts, features a messianic blue fox who slips through time and space on a mysterious mission; a homeless woman haunted by a demon who finds a strange journal; a leviathan fish, centuries old, who remembers a past that may not be its own; a madman with an invisible monster whose name he has forgotten and whose purpose remains hidden. In this landscape, VanderMeer presents a City where, in the shadow of the all-powerful Company, life converges in miraculous ways. At stake: the fate of Earth?all the Earths. VanderMeer’s last novel was Borne, which Colson Whitehead called “a thorough marvel." He is also known for his NYT-bestselling Southern Reach trilogy.
