A gripping tale of human unrelieved horror, of survival and resilience, and of the ways in which humankind confronts death, The Plague is at once a masterfully crafted novel, eloquently understated and epic in scope, and a parable of ageless moral resonance, profoundly relevant to our times.

Jeśli ktoś kiedyś powie mi, że można żyć bez snu, chyba zrobię temu komuś wielką krzywdę. Bardzo wielką. Bo się nie da. Ja, bardzo mądra dziewoja próbowałam. Bo nagle okazało się, że po nauce i wszystkich innych czynnościach związanych z domem i rodziną, trochę zaczęło mi brakować czasu na tak długi...

Unable to leave the city, they are separated from loved ones who had left before the quarantine or who have died. Food becomes scarce even though the rich, as always, have enough. Month after mon...
