Episode Notes

On this episode, we discuss our Books and Boba August 2019 book club pick, Severance, by Ling Ma, a story about a millennial New Yorker dealing with (or not dealing with) a zombie apocalypse. Marvin and Reera discuss the book's contemporary take on the Zombie genre and how the book deftly melds millennial anxieties with the nuances of life as a 1.5 generation Asian American immigrant.
