Nevil Shute Norway (1899 - 1960) was an English novelist who spent many of his later years in Australia, the setting for this novel. Initially published as a four-part series called The Last Days on Earth, this post-apocalyptic novel tells of a group of people in Australia waiting for the deadly radiation from a nuclear holocaust to finally reach them. On the Beach was adapted into film twice, in 1959 and 2000.
