First published in 2013, SUGAR MOUNTAIN revolves around a deadly virus that starts in China and spreads around the world. Set in western Massachusetts, it was prescient not only about the recent pandemic, but about what could be in store in the future. When the virus arrives and spreads, the Arkwrights, an extended family, gather at their farm in western Massachusetts to face together the relentless mass killer. As well as the ravaging influenza, they must contend with provisioning themselves and fending off a local well-armed and ruthless para-military group all the while hanging on to enough humanity to make their survival meaningful.

Gluckman, Professor of Medicine, Perelman Medical School at the University of Pennsylvania; Medical Director, Penn Global Medicine.
