Emily St. John Mandel (born 1979) is a Canadian novelist.
Mandel was born and raised on Denman Island off the west coast of British Columbia, Canada. She left school at 18 to study contemporary dance at The School of Toronto Dance Theatre and lived briefly in Montreal before relocating to New York City.
Mandel has published four novels. Her fourth, Station Eleven, is a post-apocalyptic novel set in the near future in a world ravaged by the effects of a virus and follows a troupe of Shakespearian actors who travel from town to town around the Great Lakes region. It was nominated for the National Book Award, the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction and the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction, and won the Arthur C. Clarke Award and the Toronto Book Award. A film adaptation of the novel is in development by producer Scott Steindorff.
Mandel wrote an article analysing in detail – using Goodreads' database of books – statistics relating to novels with titles in the "The ___'s Daughter" pattern.
She wrote a similar, subsequent article analysing in detail – using Goodreads' database of books – statistics relating to novels that included the word "girl" in the title. One of her findings was that the girl is “significantly more likely to end up dead” if the author of the book is male.2015 Winner Arthur C. Clarke Award for Station Eleven
