People concerned about global cataclysms still must grapple with the private ones. This is a book about personal apocalypses: When our gardens die, when all is lost, when our hearts feel ruined, we the people rise—we soften ourselves to meet the chaos. In the rubble of it all, our worst fears realized, we build some small fire and warm our hands.

The People's Apocalypse is 45 essays about how we prepare, respond, and recover to the large and small endings that mark our time on this earth.
