The Laws of Thermodynamics by Cat Walsh
You can't win, you can't get even, you can't get out of the game. Three days before the end of the world, Daniel stumbles into the town of Crumb, Texas, population: 3. And while those three seem friendly...ish, he soon realizes their relationship is much more complicated than it seemed. In fact, everything about Crumb is complicated, except for this: there's no leaving, no matter how hard you try.
A dark funny and spirited look at human behaviour in the face of imminent death, The Laws of Thermodynamics is a gas-station gothic that examines loss, obsession and what it means to really say "The End".
