a new ending

Novels have a new type of ending. It's more complete.

The New York Times reviews Far North, Marcel Theroux’s postcollapse novel about global warming, which 'has reduced civilization to largely pre­industrial levels of technology and made sparsely populated areas like the Siberian tundra safer than lawless cities.'

In the novel, Theroux writes:

'Everyone expects to be at the end of something. What no one expects is to be at the end of everything.'
