Candace Chen, one of the last people alive in New York City after a fungal infection spreads across the world, spends her days as the sole employee of a defunct publishing company. Darkly and dryly humorous, the novel is a zombie horror story, an office satire, a coming of age narrative, an immigrant saga, and a mediation on the perils and pleasures of nostalgia.
