Chuck Wendig visits with his sweeping big new, genre-defying novel of a United States in the grip of epic travail, Wanderers (Del Rey). A scourge of sleepwalking takes over people in a place that seems all too familiar.
“Wendig pulls no punches in this blockbuster apocalyptic novel, which confronts some of the darkest and most divisive aspects of present-day America with urgency, humanity, and hope … Wendig challenges readers with twists and revelations that probe issues of faith and free will while crafting a fast-paced narrative with deeply real characters. His politics are unabashed—characters include a populist president brought to power by neo-Nazis, as well as murderous religious zealots—but not simplistic, and he tackles many moral questions while eschewing easy answers. This career-defining epic deserves its inevitable comparisons to Stephen King’s The Stand, easily rising above the many recent novels of pandemic and societal collapse.” - Publishers Weekly.
“Wanderers is amazing—huge, current, both broad and intensely personal, blending the contemplative apocalypse of Station Eleven with the compulsive readability of the best thrillers.”—Django Wexler.
Chuck Wendig is also the author of the popular Miriam Black thrillers and Star Wars: The Aftermath.
