In Josh Malerman’s debut, Bird Box, the role of Malorie brings to new literature a distinctively male recognition of strong women. Like Hugh Howey’s Vic in Sand and Jules in Wool and Montana in Peace in Amber, Malerman writes a rational intelligence that women may too easily take for granted in themselves and each other.
