In this teeming lyrical novel, love is remembered as a jungle of flora and fauna cleaved by tectonic shock and human fault. Our restless narrator stirs between Singapore, Japan, and British Columbia with prose that engulfs like radioactive mist. Personal, geographic, political, and cultural environments take on one another's qualities, culminating in the Tohoku earthquake that shatters Japan.
Leanne Dunic is a multidisciplinary artist and the singer/guitarist for The Deep Cove.
