A World Out of Reach: Dispatches from Life under Lockdown

Meghan O'Rourke

In beautifully written and powerfully thought prose, A World Out of Reach offers a crucial record of COVID-19 and the cataclysmic spring of 2020―a record for us and for posterity―in the arresting voices of poets, essayists, scholars, and health care workers. Ranging from matters of policy and social justice to ancient history and personal stories of living under lockdown, this vivid compilation from The Yale Review presents a first draft of one of the most tumultuous periods in recent history.

Meghan O’Rourke is a culture critic for Slate. Her essays and poems have appeared in the New Yorker, Nation, Best American Poetry, and other publications. She is the author of the award-winning book of poems, Halflife. She lives in Brooklyn, where she grew up.
