As the lake water starts its yearly August drop, I‘m picking up this short cli-fi catastrophe novel.
In this novella, a woman and her baby are searching for refuge as London is submerged by the rising waters.
In parallel to the dire situation being described, we're witnessing the baby growing up.
This novella offers an interesting take on apocalyptic fiction, with sections in italics inspired by mythological & religious texts. It's a short read, a mix of prose, with a poetic layout whose content reads like diary entries.
Overall, a nice discovery
