(? - ) US poet and author whose first novel, the moderately distant Near Future After the Flood (2019), focuses on the quest of a mother for her long-abducted daughter Rowena. In a world of catastrophic Climate Change, with America transformed by vastly rising seas into an extended Archipelago, with former mountains now serving as Islands, she has made her living at sea, and suspects that Rowena may be in Greenland. The tale turns on the threat that any success in finding her daughter, after seven years in a strange world, may be pyrrhic. [JC]
