It is a moment in the near future when the threat of terror has cultivated rage, apathy, and panic across the country. For Phil, a dermatologist at the UCLA hospital, it is a time of unease, in contrast to the days when he coasted through life on his good looks and middling charm. In addition to having to deal with his mother, Edith, who’s emerging after years of grieving over her late husband, Phil has been recruited for a secret terror-response team. The assignment just may provide an ordinary man a chance at heroism.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A novel alive with wit and love and energy—a book about things falling apart that turns out to be a day at the beach…Pure joy.” Joan Didion
“Potent and poignant…A remarkable achievement.” The Washington Post
“Unadorned pitch perfect sentences...See writes about a threatening near-future, but she also writes so well that even her most devastating lines and moments give you hope.” San Francisco Chronicle
“See’s ability to intertwine these people’s personal worries with a collective sense of dread is what’s most impressive here, along with her trademark doomsday pluckiness. She’s the best kind of novelist to read in an emergency mood, growing calmer and more self-assured as the anxiety melts.” Baltimore Sun
“Spare and elliptical…generous…hopeful…quirky twists and turns are closer to life as we know it than the predictable pathways of more conventional fiction.” Columbus Dispatch
“See’s potent new novel articulates the instinctive, human impulse toward connection in the face of mortality…the fracturing and coalescing relationships mirror the drama of a possible epidemic as See’s utterly believable characters fumble for love and meaning.” Publishers Weekly
“This timely story will appeal to many despite its reminder that life will never be what it once was.” AudioFile
“True-to-life characters and insight into the human condition power this life-affirming novel. Readers will have no trouble identifying with the resilient protagonists, and they will find comfort in See’s nonapocalyptic vision of the future.” Library Journal
“Artistic and soulful master achievement…The novel’s deep resonance lies in her imaginative yet meaningful juxtaposition of global issues and domestic ones.” Booklist
“Never dull, See’s seventh [novel] throws an idiosyncratic light on our contemporary age of anxiety.” Kirkus
