Severance book cover
A Novel
Ling Ma - 2018-08-14
Goodreads Rating
In Ling Ma's offbeat and wryly funny novel, Severance, Candace Chen, a first-generation American and millennial drone, is navigating adulthood in a routine-driven life. However, when a plague sweeps New York, she finds herself alone and photographing the abandoned city under the pseudonym, NY Ghost. Soon, Candace joins a group of survivors led by a power-hungry IT tech and must navigate her way through a new society. This apocalyptic satire is a moving family story, a quirky coming-of-adulthood tale, and a hilarious, deadpan tribute to human connections that drive us to do more than just survive.
