Book of the Month
Sea of Tranquility by Emily St. John Mandel

‘I loved the slow, mesmerising reveal of this looping novel about time travel, pandemics and human connection.

Through the lens of a future pandemic, Mandel articulates the way our current Covid experience is shifting our expectations of time and travel. She masterfully captures the feeling that we’ve sleepwalked into a science fiction future both unsettlingly strange and deeply familiar.

Reading this was like solving an immensely satisfying and wistfully nostalgic puzzle.’
