Description

“We knew very little with any certainty. One thing, though, was confirmed by everyone: that we were not the only ones flooded. For all we knew, every city across the globe had suffered a comparable fate”.

As an unnamed city finds itself partially submerged below water, a small community of friends and lovers is forced to adapt to a world that has been radically transformed.

Our Distance Became Water is the debut novel of Andreas Philippopoulos-Mihalopoulos, author of the acclaimed short story collection Book of Water.
