Reviews

"Sigrid Nunez's Salvation City is a novel from 2010 that grapples with the strange and intangible fallout of a global pandemic, imagining the kind of psychological impact that such an event can have...One of the biggest questions that the coronavirus pandemic has produced is how a period of prolonged isolation, compounded by an ambient anxiety of getting sick and a physical fear of all humans, will impact the development of children and adolescents. ... Nunez is especially skilled at imagining just how strange it would be to form any kind of selfhood under these circumstances." -- The New Yorker
