Act of God by Jill Ciment

Where would you go if you were evacuated from your home because it was invaded by a colony of glowing mushrooms? W978-0-307-91170-4[1].jpghat if that home was your last refuge?

This comedy/horror story follows the lives of a landlord, twin sister tenants, and a runaway Russian au pair after they are evacuated from their apartment due to the fungal infestation that is described by the insurance company as an “Act of God.” Soon the lethal mushrooms are spreading from one building to another and entire sections of the Manhattan are quarantined and slated for demolition. Ciment fills the story with humor as each character is faced with one challenge after another.
