Overview

American Fever: A Tale of Romance & Pestilence by Peter Christian Hall

A young libertarian flu fighter huddles at home in New York's East Village, blogging about a devastating avian flu pandemic as he sells masks, gloves, and goggles over the Internet. An intriguing, vexing woman stalks him while he delves into the mysteries of influenza and serves up colorful commentary on the chaos swirling around-and within-his world.

When 'Count Blogula' gets involved with some lively community flu activists, he collides with a government bent on controlling Americans as if they were viral intruders. With the U.S. staggering through a kind of national Katrina -- Chinatown a smoky ruin, Atlanta evacuated, Houston blown up -- he must fight both the system and the contagion to save his life and love.
