Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Paolo Giordana.
The coronavirus pandemic is far from over in spite of lockdowns and quarantines easing in many cities and nations. It is arguable if the world will ever go back to “normal,” or if we have to invent a new normal in order to survive the virus.
In one of the global epicenters of the disease – Italy – a physicist and novelist published the first book about Covid-19, exploring the crisis through the lens of science and society. His book, which was first published in essay form, was shared millions of times online and is thought to have changed the debate around the coronavirus.
