      Book discussion of Severance by Ling Ma

      Severance goes back and forth in time, contrasting protagonist Candace’s tedious office job with her travels across post-apocalyptic America. It’s a technique Ma uses to great effect—it’s jarring in a great way, making the horror of her new circumstances all the more intense. It’s a wicked satire of consumerism and work culture that induces winces rather than laughs, but that doesn’t make it any less entertaining.
