The villain of Lewis’s story is not Donald Trump; it’s the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. What we needed was earlier shutdowns, frank public messaging, a more decentralized testing regime, a public health bureaucracy more willing to stand up to the president. But I’m skeptical of whether the kind of pandemic response he lionizes in the book was ever possible for America. Put another way: How much of a constraint is the public on public health? I’m not sure Lewis and I came to agreement, but I’m still thinking about the conversation weeks later.

(Until Covid-19, tuberculosis had been the world’s leading cause of death from an infectious agent.) The coroner refuses to help with the procedure and instead hands her a pair of gardening shears, hoping to deter her. In The Premonition, the stakes are even higher: battling a pandemic that would go on to claim hundreds of thousands of lives. The Premonition came to Lewis quickly. “I thought, I don’t care, the character is so strong that I don’t care what happens,” he says.
