Fourteen Days is a collaborative novel led and edited by Margaret Atwood and Douglas Preston. 

One week into lockdown, the tenants of a Manhattan apartment building start to gather on the rooftop to tell stories. With each passing night, more and more neighbours gather, bringing chairs and milk crates and overturned buckets. Gradually the tenants – some of whom have barely spoken to each other before now – become real neighbours.

With each character secretly written by a different, major literary voice (think Margaret Atwood, John Grisham, Dave Eggers, Celeste Ng and many more), Fourteen Days is a heart-warming ode to the power of storytelling and human connection.
