"In this trenchant novel, the end of the world also brings us to the very brink of the end of whiteness, a necessary and vital reckoning with our precarious ecological future ... all the while circling around the question of what it might mean to more fully and honestly love." Jacob Wren, author of Polyamorous Love Song
"A striking reminder that care, dedication, and love powerfully endure even though the world as we know it becomes terrifyingly unrecognisable." Zoé Samudzi, co-author of As Black as Resistance
