What if the end of the world is the best thing that's never happened? As the apocalypse rolls on Donna and her eight-year-old daughter prepare for the worst. But despite the dying world, they find salvation with neighbours they never knew before. There's a chip shop fryer, student dropouts, a street gang, a disillusioned academic, an elderly Jehovah's Witness and a shopkeeper who dreamed of being a journalist. Ordinary people do extraordinary things, from sharing a cooked meal to restarting the water supply using wind power. They build a new world in the ruins of the old. But there's no paradise yet. Botched deals, armed survivalists and raids threaten to destroy progress. And the occasional screech of a fighter jet reminds them that the nuclear threat still looms... AUTHOR: Scottish novelist D.D. Johnston writes books that are "Funny as all Hell" (The Sunday Herald) and "unputtable-downable" (Northern Soul). The consistent theme throughout Johnston's writing is his love for ordinary people, and his faith in the extraordinary things we can achieve together. He lives in Cheltenham, England, where he cares for his infant son. He is a lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Gloucestershire. SELLING POINTS: . 'DD JOHNSTON, one of this country's most principled socialist novelists, is also one of the most versatile and talented around.' The Morning Star. . Postapocalyptic but not bleak; Disnaeland is witty, moving and politically charged. The speculative fiction of Disnaeland dares to invert dystopia. . A proudly Scottish novel by a Scottish author. Worthy of a place among the very best Scottish literature.
