Ton Zijlstra reminded me (scroll down} that I’d only just recently recommended Sarah Pinsker’s A Song for a New Day which “turns out to be the perfect thing to read in a rising pandemic”, and it’s true: the book literally is about a near future where post-pandemic, our social distancing measures have become routine well beyond any evidence they still are needed. Which isn’t, here and now, an argument against social distancing; it’s an argument for community in any case.
