John Birmingham

In 2008, John Birmingham released his electrifying thriller Without Warning, which imagined a world where an unexplained energy field wipes out America. Now, he returns to that world with his new blockbuster: *After America. The much-loved author of He Died with a Felafel in His Hand and the Weapons of Choice* trilogy talks about his new passion for the epic page-turner, and where speculative fiction and geopolitical commentary collide. John Birmingham will be introduced by David Astle.
