A much anticipated new novel. So anticipated I didn’t register the creeping horror of it. Or maybe it wasn’t on the book jacket.
It’s really a story of loss: loss of the relationships we want or need, the people we thought would be there forever, and all the things they left behind that make us into the people we are, reaching out to other damaged and lonely people.
Also, the deep. The deep, deep expanse of the ocean and what might have a giant eye down there capable of looking into your submersible.
