Yaaawn!

Man and Partner survive on their own with dog after major disease epidemic destroys America. They have an airplane. Eventually He Finds a Woman. She is a Doctor (so bloody useless then, what you want for community care is a nurse or midwife). A possible medication is found (VItamin D? G-d give me strength, that's not how disease works).

End of book.

Lyrical, elegiacally, delusional about the likelihood of lone v. communal survivors as US apocalyptic novels tend to be.

Sf? By definition, has to be, but written as classic YA introspection.

There is always one wtf? novel on the Clarke list, as sure is eggs is eggs. This is at least a beautifully written one.
