"a powerful literary exploration of loneliness, redundancy and the relentless processes of change"

Robert Neville has survived the pandemic, but nobody else has. Each night his neighbours besiege his house, blood-sucking, pale-skinned and nocturnal. But who is the monster in this world turned upside down? The more Neville tries to rationalise his condition, the more unnerved he becomes in what begins as a post-apocalyptic thriller and turns, in a few short pages, into a powerful literary exploration of loneliness, redundancy and the relentless processes of change.
