Meet two writers whose new books have set the critics alight. Catherine Chanter's The Well is a gripping thriller built around a house that harbours some troubling secrets. Emily St John Mandel's sparkling Station Eleven is George R R Martin's favourite novel of the year. It is a story of love and nostalgia, 20 years after a flu bug has wiped almost everyone out. Both novels are set to be award-winning bestsellers.

Emily St. John Mandel was born in Canada and studied dance at The School of Toronto Dance Theatre. She is the author of the novels Last Night in Montreal, The Singer's Gun, The Lola Quartet and Station Eleven and is a staff writer for The Millions. She is married and lives in New York.
