The transition from winter to spring has never been so promising.

It is the twilight of humanity, the apocalypse. The British government has decided to spread an announcement with smoky outlines that leaves unsolved questions about why and how, but precisely determines when: March 21 will be the last day of every man's life.
Awareness of the end is a dark stone that slowly sinks into everyone's consciousness. It causes waves of fear that gradually widen and devastate the peaceful places of Sophie's daily life and her motherhood. On the contrary, in Simon it produces an exhilarating sense of victory over the disease, which can no longer steal his life, while Tara experiences the risk of building a survival for humanity, albeit in an entirely artificial way.
This is a novel that bravely addresses the only event that can affect everyone indiscriminately, through the path of a narration of intimacy, of the feelings that have just surfaced, which run through and put tension on the enormous ribs of the inner worlds.


"The most fascinating novel about the end of the world".
Amélie Nothomb
