Reviews

"Maddening and sobering--as comprehensive an account of the first year of the pandemic as we've yet seen . . . In his characteristically rigorous and engrossing style, Wright documents innumerable episodes of ineptitude and malfeasance even as Trump officials such as Peter Navarro privately reckoned that 'a full-blown . . . pandemic could infect as many as 100 million Americans.'" --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
