A white fam­ily is sur­prised when the Black own­ers of their Long Is­land rental show up un­ex­pect­edly with news of a black­out in the city. Al­ready slated for a Net­flix adap­ta­tion star­ring Ju­lia Roberts and Den­zel Washington, Ru­maan Alam’s lat­est novel is an un­set­tling, pre­scient break­down of race and class at the on­set of the apoca­lypse.
