Tonight we’ll celebrate the publication of Alexandra Oliva’s debut novel, The Last One (Ballantine), in which twelve contestants in a television reality show discover that something terrible has happened in the outside world. How extensive is the destruction (and is it just part of the game)? “The Last One seamlessly melds two of our contemporary obsessions--the threat of global catastrophe and the staged drama of reality TV--into a fiercely imagined tale of the human psyche under stress. This is an uncompromising, thought-provoking debut.”--Justin Cronin.
