Spotlight on a Book: Author Kira Jane Buxton takes a joyfully original approach to apocalyptic fiction in this debut novel Hollow Kingdom. Instead of us humans being the focal point in the story of our own extinction, it’s the plethora of life that we leave behind that takes center stage. Narrated by S.T., a fast-food-loving domesticated crow, the novel follows him and his droopy dog companion, Dennis, as they try to survive a world where humans have gone berserk and begin to die out. Slowly, S.T. learns that wild animals are just as creative, resourceful and lively as the humans he so loves (Illana Masad, book critic, NPR Book Concierge).
