Dr. Cliff Miyashiro arrives in the Arctic Circle to continue his recently deceased daughter's research; only to discover a virus; newly unearthed from melting permafrost. The plague unleashed reshapes life on earth for generations. Yet even while struggling to counter this destructive force; humanity stubbornly persists in myriad moving and ever inventive ways.

Among those adjusting to this new normal are an aspiring comedian; employed by a theme park designed for terminally ill children; who falls in love with a mother trying desperately to keep her son alive a scientist who; having failed to save his own son from the plague; gets a second chance at fatherhood when one of his test subjects-a pig-develops human speech a man who; after recovering from his own coma; plans a block party for his neighbours who have also woken up to find that they alone have survived their families and a widowed painter and her teenaged granddaughter who must set off on cosmic quest to locate a new home planet.

From funerary skyscrapers to hotels for the dead; How High We Go in the Dark follows a cast of intricately linked characters spanning hundreds of years as humanity endeavours to restore the delicate balance of the world. This is a story of unshakable hope that crosses literary lines to give us a world rebuilding itself through an endless capacity for love; resilience and reinvention.
