Publisher Comments:

The Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning novel of climate change in the not-too-distant future

Francis Conway is Swill—one of the 90 percent in the year 2041 who must subsist on the inadequate charities of the state. A young boy growing, Francis finds life is rapidly becoming impossible as government corruption, official blindness, and nature have conspired to turn Swill homes into watery tombs. Now he must find a way to escape the approaching tide of disaster. Comparable to J.G. Ballard's The Drowned World, George Turner's masterful exploration of the effects of climate change was also shortlisted for the Nebula Award.
