About the Author

Alexandra Duncan is an author and librarian. She lives in the mountains of western North Carolina with her husband and two monstrous, furry cats.


"Salvage is the book I've been waiting for--kick-ass, brilliant, feminist science fiction. Watch out, world. Alexandra Duncan has arrived." -- Stephanie Perkins, internationally bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door

"Alexandra Duncan's debut illustrates a richly detailed world that vividly shows a possible future of Earth where society has both regressed and progressed, where the struggles of humanity have become more dire, but where love still remains. Everything--from the world to the characters--felt viscerally real. Original and memorable." -- Beth Revis, author of the nationally best-selling Across the Universe

"Epic in scope and intimate in execution, Salvage is an astonishing debut. Duncan expertly crafts a story of the journey to claim oneself across the infinite expanses of both space and the human heart." -- Kiersten White, author of the New York Times best-selling Paranormalcy trilogy

"Alexandra Duncan is a stunning new voice. Duncan's magnificently flawed future world exposes humanity . . . in ways that are ripe for discussion. . . . Ava's personal journey from oppression to self-actualization--by turns harrowing and heartbreaking, but ultimately triumphant--will keep readers glued to the pages. Highly recommended." -- Rae Carson, author of the best-selling Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy

"Duncan makes an excellent debut . . . A powerfully immersive story that uses its far-future SF premise to thoughtfully explore gender politics." -- Publishers Weekly

"Debut author Alexandra Duncan portrays a patriarchal civilization eerily reminiscent of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale....Duncan's fast-paced narrative and original settings--from the Parastrata to the Gyre (a floating garbage mass in the Pacific) to Mumbai--will keep readers riveted." -- Shelf Awareness for Readers
