The award-winning author of Station Eleven; Emily St. John Mandel returns with a wondrous novel of time travel that precisely captures the reality of our current moment. Sea of Tranquility is a virtuoso performance and an enormously exciting offering from one of our most remarkable writers. In 1912; eighteen-year-old Edwin St. Andrew crosses the Atlantic; exiled from English polite society. In British Columbia; he enters the forest; spellbound by the beauty of the Canadian wilderness; and for a split second all is darkness; the notes of a violin echoing unnaturally through the air. The experience shocks him to his core. Two centuries later Olive Llewelyn; a famous writer; is traveling all over Earth; far away from her home in the second moon colony. Within the text of Olive’s bestselling novel lies a strange passage: a man plays his violin for change in the echoing corridor of an airship terminal as the trees of a forest rise around him. When Gaspery-Jacques Roberts; a detective in the black-skied Night City; is hired to investigate an anomaly in time; he uncovers a series of lives upended: the exiled son of an aristocrat driven to madness; a writer trapped far from home as a pandemic ravages Earth; and a childhood friend from the Night City who; like Gaspery himself; has glimpsed the chance to do something extraordinary that will disrupt the timeline of the universe. Sea of Tranquility is a novel that investigates the idea of parallel worlds and possibilities; that plays with the very line along which time should run. Perceptive and poignant about art; and love; and what we must do to survive; it is incredibly compelling.
