The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi
The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi
Into the chaos of a prolonged drought step Angel Velasquez—a "water knife"; Lucy Monroe, a hardened journalist; and Maria Villarosa, a young migrant, who dreams of escaping north to those places where water still falls from the sky: All three find themselves pawns in a game far bigger, more corrupt and dirtier than any of them could have imagined.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By P. J. Moore on February 1, 2014
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Faulkner's humor is one of his strengths. Teaching some of his more humorous works is a good way to interest students in the body of his works.

For me, this work fell short of revealing Faulkner's humor. There are too few examples and the essays are dry and scholarly.
