Panofsky, Margaret

Entry updated 31 July 2023. Tagged: Author.

(?   -    ) US musician, specializing in the viola de gamba, and author; her first novel, The Last Shade Tree (2017), depicts with some complexity a Near Future planet manifestly at the verge of plunging into World War Three through the Young Adult eyes of a disaffected member of the Cherokee nation. His experience of the world, and what may be done to save anything, is mediated through the adjurations of two Aliens in orbit, who seem to have used Time Travel to gain sight of the terrors that might ensue. Her second novel, Day of the Jumping Sun (2022), a standalone tale set in the same universe as the previous volume, conveys the responses of time travellers to a Far Future Earth stripped of all but a few surviving members of Homo sapiens on Baffin Island, presumably a long-term refuge from Climate Change. It may not be the End of the World, but close. [JC]
