Severance by Ling Ma

Candace Chen is almost thirty and struggling through a break-up when Shen Fever hits New York City. Soon the subway is out, and her colleagues are disappearing. Is Candace the last unfevered person in New York? Will she notice? Severance tells a funny and unnerving story about the comforts we substitute for human connection. It’s also a post-apocalyptic survivor story populated by gentle zombies who crave routine, not brains. Finally, it’s a millennial’s immigrant story told by the deadpan and exhausted Candace as she moves forward, rootless.

Place a hold on Severance in the library catalog.
