“In a breathtaking mash-up of now and just a hair beyond now, Ling Ma’s apocalypse glistens with terror, humor, anger, and humanity. I promise, you will not be able to stop reading this ingeniously constructed and electrifyingly harrowing book.” 
―Samantha Hunt, author of The Dark Dark

“As a look into where our overconsumption might lead us, Ling Ma’s Severance rings terrifyingly true. More than that, it’s a moving meditation on home, belonging, and life itself―all rendered in cool yet affecting prose that’s too good not to keep reading.” 
―Rachel Khong, author of Goodbye, Vitamin
