Pre-pub editoral previews for Ling Ma's cli-fi satire ''SEVERANCE''

“In a breathtaking mash-up of now and just a hair beyond now, Ling Ma’s cli-fi 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 cli-fi satire 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
''Severance is like nothing else around: a witty workplace novel and a terrifying cli-fi plague yarn, an immigrant story and a sort of homecoming, full of Chinese whispers and New York ghosts.”
―Ed Park, author of Personal Days
“Ling Ma has given us a terrifyingly plausible cli-fi vision of our collective future, one in which our comforts have become pathology and our habits death―and, in her protagonist, a hero who doesn’t know if she should be seeking salvation or oblivion. And yet, somehow, Severance could easily become one of the funniest book of the 2018. It’s a brilliant, deadpan cli-fi novel of survival, in this world and in the precarious world to come.” 
―J. Robert Lennon, author of Broken River
