Editorial Reviews

Review

"Evoking Ursula LeGuin's unflinching humane and moral authority, Nina Munteanu takes us into the lives of four generations of women and their battles against a global giant that controls and manipulates Earth's water. In a diary that entwines acute scientific observation with poignant personal reflection, Lynna's story unfolds incrementally, like climate change itself. Particularly harrowing are the neighbourhood water betrayals, along with Lynna's deliberately dehydrated appearance meant to deflect attention from her own clandestine water collection. Her estrangement from her beloved daughter, her "dark cascade" who embarks upon a deadly path of her own, is heartwrenching. Munteanu elegantly transports us between Lynna's exuberant youth and her tormented present, between microcosm and macrocosm, linking her story and struggles-and those of her mother, daughter, and granddaughter-to the life force manifest in water itself. In language both gritty and hauntingly poetic, Munteanu delivers an uncompromising warning of our future."
--Lynn Hutchinson Lee, multimedia artist, author, and playwright

"Transcendent.. .. A book of genuine power, A Diary in the Age of Water, is simply and beautifully told, profoundly true; a novel that invites us all to embrace the wisdom of ages. The story stirs its readers, teaches them about the importance of water, and leaves an indubitable imprint on the canvas of the literary and scientific world."
--Lucia Monica Gorea, author of Journey Through My Soul
