On the Beach
Set in Melbourne following a catastrophic war in the northern hemisphere, Nevil Shute's classic is the story of a handful of survivors in the terrifying aftermath of nuclear apocalypse. First published in 1957--and famously adapted for the screen soon after by Stanley Kramer, in a film starring Gregory Peck and Ava Gardner--On the Beach is the perhaps the greatest work of popular fiction about the end of the world.
