Voices from the Pandemic: Americans Tell Their Stories of Crisis, Courage and Resilience .

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter, a powerful and cathartic portrait of a country grappling with the Covid-19 pandemicfrom fear and overwhelm to extraordinary resiliencetold through voices of people from all across America

The Covid-19 pandemic was a world-shattering event, affecting everyone in the nation. From its first ominous stirrings, renowned journalist Eli Saslow began interviewing a cross-section of Americans, capturing their experiences in real time: An exhausted and anguished EMT risking his life in New York City a grocery store owner feeding his neighborhood for free in locked-down New Orleans an overwhelmed coroner in Georgia a Maryland restaurateur forced to close his family business after forty-six years an Arizona teacher wrestling with her fears and her obligations to her students rural citizens adamant that the whole thing is a hoax, and retail workers attacked for asking people to wear masks patients struggling to breathe and doctors desperately trying to save them.

Through Saslow's masterful, empathetic interviewing, we are given a kaleidoscopic picture of a people dealing with the unimaginable. These deeply personal accounts make for cathartic reading, as we see Americans at their worst, and at their resilient best.
