Kate and Albert, sister and brother, are not yet the last two human beings on earth, but Albert is hopeful. The secluded communal farm they grew up on – after twenty years – disintegrating, taking their parents’ marriage with it. And then there is Don: father of the family, leader and maker of elaborate speeches. Faced with the prospect of saving his community, his marriage, his son from apocalyptic visions and his daughter from impending men, he sets to work on reunifying the commune by bringing it into the modern age, through self-sufficiency, charisma and a rave with a 10k soundsystem. The last day on earth is coming. Bring your own booze.

 

Joe also co-organises a monthly night of literary miscellany, Homework (www.aisle16.co.uk/homework-ldn) in East London at our fave establishment the BGWMC. He is a striker for the England Writers’ Football Team. Now twenty-nine, he lives in London. Read the Run Riot Interview with Joe here!
