Book Club-“The End of October”

This last is a novel about a pandemic. The author began writing it in 2017 and completed it in 2019. It was published fairly recently. The events are eerily similar to current experience. I’ve picked a few of the editorial review quotations from Amazon to give a sense of it:

 

“[Wright’s] book shows that our new reality, a surprise and a shock to most of us, is actually following a script written far in advance, with all the words and phrases that we never used six weeks ago—attack rate, viral load, cytokine storm—now part of our everyday speech . . . The prescience of The End of October is undeniable . . . Wright is as amiable a tour guide as you could hope for through the darkest terrain of recent history.” —Christian Lorentzen, Air Mail
