This is no ordinary novel. An encyclopedia of memory-from A to Z-The End of the World Bookdeftly intertwines fiction, memoir, and cultural history, reimagining the story of the world and one manrsquo;s life as they both hurtle toward a frightening future. Alistair McCartneyrsquo;s alphabetical guide to the apocalypse layers images like a prose poem, building from Aristotle to da Vinci, hip-hop to lederhosen, plagues to zippers, while barreling from antiquity to the present.nbsp; In this profound book about mortality, McCartney composes an irreverent archive of philosophical obsessions and homoerotic fixations, demonstrating the difficulty of separating what is real from what is imagined.
