Sequoia Nagamatsu's: How High We Go in the Dark

Dr. Cliff Miyashiro travels to the Arctic Circle to continue the studies of his recently departed daughter, only to come across a virus that has suddenly emerged from melting permafrost. For generations, the disease has reshaped life on Earth. Despite the fact that mankind is battling this destructive force, it endures in a variety of moving and ever-inventive ways. 

An aspiring comedian working at a theme park for terminally ill children falls in love with a mother fighting to keep her son alive; a scientist who, after failing to save his own son from the plague, is given a second chance at fatherhood when one of his test subjects—a pig—develops human speech; and a man who, after waking up from his own coma, organises a block party for his neighbours who have also woken up.

How High We Go in the Dark follows a cast of intricately interwoven people across hundreds of years as mankind attempts to restore the fragile balance of the earth, from funeral towers to hotels for the dead. This is a narrative of unwavering optimism that spans genres to depict a world reborn via an infinite capacity for love, perseverance, and reinvention.
