The Hopkins Manuscript: R C Sherriff


Retired teacher Edgar Hopkins lives for the thrill of winning poultry prizes. But his narrow world is shattered when he learns that the moon is about to come crashing into the Earth, with apocalyptic consequences. The manuscript he leaves behind will be a testament – to his growing humanity and to how one English village tried to survive the end of the world. Written in 1939 as the world was teetering on the brink of global war, R.C. Sherriff’s tragicomic novel is a masterly work of science fiction, and a powerful warning from the past.
