Things I will never forget: my name, my made-up birthday...The dark of the Hospital at night.
My mother's face, when she was young. Things other people will forget: where they come from, how old they are, the faces of the people they love.
The right words for bowl and sunshine...What is a beginning and what is an end. Joy spends her days working the graveyard shift at a store outside Boston and nursing an addiction to cough syrup, an attempt to suppress her troubled past.
But when a sickness that begins with silver blisters and memory loss and ends with death sweeps the country, Joy, for the first time in her life, seems to have an advantage: she is immune.
Laura van den Berg's critically acclaimed debut novel is at once a hauntingly beautiful portrayal of a dystopian future and a powerful exploration of loneliness.
