The Plague Year: America in the Time of Covid

From the Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Looming Tower, whose best selling thriller The End of the October all but predicted our current pandemic, comes another momentous account, this time of COVID 19: its origins, its myriad repercussions, and the ongoing fight to contain it

Beginning with the absolutely critical first moments of the outbreak in China, and ending with an epilogue on the vaccine rollout and the unprecedented events between the election of Joseph Biden and his inauguration, Lawrence Wright's The Plague Year surges forward with essential information and fascinating historical parallels examining the medical, economic, political, and social ramifications of the COVID 19 pandemic.

Wright takes us inside the CDC, where the first round of faulty test kits cost America precious time; inside the halls of the White House, where Deputy National Security Advisor Matthew Pottinger's early alarm about the virus was met with great skepticism; into a COVID ward in a Charlottesville hospital, with an idealistic young woman doctor from Little Africa, South Carolina; into the precincts of prediction specialists at Goldman Sachs; and even inside the human body, diving deep into the science of just how the virus and vaccines function, with an eye opening detour into the history of vaccination and of the modern anti vaxxer movement.

In turns steely eyed, sympathetic, infuriated, comical, and always precise, Wright is a formidable guide, slicing through the dense fog of misinformation to give us a 360 degree portrait of the catastrophe we thought we knew. His full accounting does honor to the medical professionals around the country who've risked their lives to fight the virus, revealing America in all its vulnerability, courage, and potential.

U will about chick lit those authors have pretty much mastered exactly how far to take things and when to fade to black Any time after that first encounter whenever there was the hint of a sex scene about to happen I pretty much skipped to the next chapterAs I said I wanted to like it and I pretty much skipped to the next chapterAs I said I wanted to like it and I hoping to be able to give this a good review but in good conscience I simply cannot The Miles is a book I wanted to like But it was not to be I saw it on a table at a bookstore and picked it up As a runner myself the premise intrigued me Unfortunately this text lives up to every stereotype out there about gay men This is made distressing by the fact that the author is a gay man and one would hope he of all people would not engage in stereotypes of himself and his peersStereotypes that I found particularly irritating included the idea that gay men cry every time one of their friends make a clich d trite statement such as look how far we have come etc that gay men are either fabulous shopaholics or hedonists who go after the oungest man available to them There is an inexplicable scene in the novel where many of the book s

review The Miles

The Miles
The Myth of the Perfect Girl Simon Bolivar
Interesting The gay part of the story is a bit hackneyed and not entirely believable However the running segments are right on the mark Waffling between a 4 and 45 on this one but ended on the mark Waffling between a 4 and 45 on this one but ended giving it a 45 in the end review to come The friendships loves and problems revolving around a gay running club in NYC is a light read which doesn t succumb to the obvious Reading this at the same time as Love Christopher Street this novelization was vivid in comparing it to the real memoirs of that work This book caught my eye as I was browsing through a local bookstore This is exactly the type of book I ve been looking for for ears While it may not be a classic it s a book that speaks pretty solidly to my life and I found the experience of reading it to be amazing This reads like a first work with a very wobbly start Lennon was poorly served by his editor The plot is okay and because I m gay and interested in gay romance themes it held my interest if I were not gay it might be too narrow a focus The Background Subject Is background subject is infra dig and probably roman a clef a gay running clu I decided to read this book based on the back cover blurb which talked about the camaraderie of running teams in New York City Being a part of this scene for decades I thought this book would of running teams in New York City Being a part of this scene for decades I thought this book would perfect for me But it seems I didn t read the blurb carefully enough because it turns out the book focused on just one running club A club for gays and lesbians And while there were some good moments about races I ran for the most part this was a novel about the gay lifestyle and all the drama that surrounds it And believe me in this novel there were lots of drama ueens an.
