Summary
"From Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter Eli Saslow, a powerful portrait of a country grappling with the pandemic, told through voices of people from all across America The Covid-19 pandemic was a world-shattering event, affecting everyone in the nation. From its first ominous stirrings, renowned journalist Eli Saslow began interviewing a cross-section of Americans, capturing their experiences in real time: An exhausted and anguished EMT risking his life in New York City; a grocery store owner feeding his neighborhood for free in locked-down New Orleans; an overwhelmed coroner in Georgia; a Maryland restaurateur forced to close his family business after forty-six years; an Arizona teacher wrestling with her fears and her obligations to her students; rural citizens adamant that the whole thing is a hoax, and retail workers attacked for asking people to wear masks; patients struggling to breathe and doctors desperately trying to save them. Through Saslow's masterful, empathetic interviewing, we are given a kaleidoscopic picture of a people dealing with the unimaginable. These deeply personal accounts make for cathartic reading, as we see Americans at their worst, and at their resilient best"--

Anything good I could say about this would be a lie -- Another 12 hours in this waking nightmare -- How are we supposed to eat? -- You're basically right next to the nuclear reactor -- I apologize to God for feeling this way -- Is this another death I'll have to pronounce? -- I'm getting better, right? -- What happens if they run out? -- I know it was me -- We're all starved for hope -- Heroes, right? -- No mask, no entry. Is that clear enough? -- I'm sorry, but it's a fantasy -- May rent. June rent. Late fees. Penalties -- How is it possible? What are the odds? -- Mom help help help help! -- The cure has been worse than the disease -- All the way down the rabbit hole -- Do something. Do something! -- What could possibly go wrong? -- Election day is over and guess what? -- This is how we treat each other? -- This is it.
