The Stephen King Podcast

Nov 16, 2020

Welcome to bonus episode 26 of - The Stephen King Podcast  - Constant and New Listeners!

In this episode, Nina Munteanu is the guest. Nina is a limnologist / water ecologist and teach writing at The University of Toronto in Ontario, Canada. Her non-fiction book "Water Is..." was selected by Margaret Atwood in the NYT 'Year in Reading' as her recommended choice to read in 2016. 

Her fiction book, “A Diary in the Age of Water” follows the climate-induced journey of the Earth and humanity through four generations of women, each with a unique relationship to her world and to water. Water plays both metaphoric and literal roles in this allegorical tale of humanity’s final journey from home—where male sterility, heat-shock proteins, horizontal gene transfer, and virgin-births rule a changing world of water securitization through ambitious environmental manipulation.

The cli-fi novel begins centuries from now in the dying northern boreal forest with young KYO, a blue water nymph with multiple arms who dreams of the past and of being a normal human. She is on her way to the library to memorize a textbook on the Age of Water and there discovers a piece of her past from that age when The Water Twins destroyed the world. The central part of the story is a diary by a limnologist, whose personal account creates a terrifying realism to the geo-political tension of water securitization, plague containment, and police oppression.
