Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
On the eve of the twentieth century, a courageous, headstrong Irish immigrant named Mary Mallon worked her way up the domestic-service ladder to the kitchen, and discovered in herself the true talent of a chef. She was sought after by the New York aristocracy - until one determined "medical engineer" identified Mallon as an asymptomatic carrier of Typhoid Fever and made her a hunted woman. Fever is an ambitious retelling of a forgotten life.
