Incredible, visceral story that will grip anybody who lived through Spring 2020.
I cant stop thinking about this. For me, it captures the psychotic energy of March/April 2020 in a really precise and frightening way. I guess, for some people, this is still ongoing reality - deathly fear, persistent isolation, etc. It's pretty crazy to try to imagine reading a piece of fiction like this last year. It would be 100% pure sci fi. But of course, it couldn't have been written last year, because we weren't living in actual sci-fi reality.
This is an 11. Truly sublime. Wow. Now I see why Lorrie Moore is such a huge name in the literary world.
I laughed out loud at times, but some scenes were painfully sad. Serious Infinite Jest vibes with those brutal video chat scenes. What horror. Mind-bending stuff.
