About the author:

Ewan Morrison is a multi-award-winning novelist, screenwriter and essayist. His novel, Nina X, won the Saltire Society Scottish Fiction Book of the Year and is currently being developed as a feature film. He’s previously won the Scottish Book of the Year Fiction Prize (2013) and the Glenfiddich Scottish Writer of the Year (2012). His first feature film, an adaptation, was released in five territories in 2016, and was a finalist for four international film awards. American Blackout, a feature length docudrama co-written by Morrison reached 28 million viewers. Morrison has also been nominated for three Scottish BAFTAs. Upon its publication in the U.K, How to Survive Everything was longlisted for the 2021 McIlvanney Prize for Scottish Crime Book of the Year and shortlisted for the 2021 Bookmark Book of the Year Prize.

In How to Survive Everything, children of divorce, Haley and Ben live with their mother. But their dad believes a new, much deadlier pandemic is coming and he’s determined to keep them alive by getting them to the safety of his lockdown hideaway. When their mother doesn’t agree, saving them will require extreme measures.

Kidnapped by their father and confined to his compound far off the grid, Haley and Ben have no contact with the outside world. How can they save their mother? Will they make it out alive? Is the threat real—or is this all just a dark fantasy brought on by their conspiracy-obsessed father’s warped imagination?

In a literary landscape inundated by people trying to make sense of the devastation of the past two years, How to Survive Everything is a standout, a propulsive and chillingly real account of a teenage girl’s survival guide to maintaining her family and her sanity while the world she knows collapses around her.
