An Ocean of Minutes by Thea Lim
June 26, 2018
Toronto-based Thea Lim’s debut novel centres around a couple, Frank and Polly, during a deadly flu pandemic in the U.S. When Frank is infected, the pair hatch a radical plan involving time travel to try and save him. With praise from the likes of authors Omar El Akkad and David Chariandy, and comparisons to Station Eleven, Lim’s debut could prove to be the must-read CanLit offering this summer. —Sadiya Ansari
