The End of the Day

Nominiert: The Sunday Times/Peters Fraser & Dunlop Young Writer of the Year Award 2017

***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

'Compelling . . . keeps the surprises coming until the very end' San Francisco Chronicle
