Now We Can See the Moon
A coastline razed and inundated by a hurricane. A traveler journeying towards the flood instead of away from it. A team of rescue workers without anyone to rescue, but who for various reasons can't leave the drowned city. It has been said that those who live by the sword shall die by the sword, but what about those whose job it is to save others? When the storehouse and everything in it has burned down, will we finally be able to see the moon?

About the Author
"Now We Can See the Moon explores the prospects of climate-changed near futures in a profound, unsettling, and humanistic manner. Ellingsen blends the fine grain of individual characters with the group dynamics of a disaster response team to lead readers into imagining how hurricanes and other ecological catastrophes shape the lives of people alone and in communities. In Ellingsen's deft hands, a set of gold-rimmed china becomes uncanny signifiers of quotidian life disrupted, a swarm of eels becomes a writhing feeding collective that entrances even as it repulses, and a routine conversation about minutia can slide into a brilliant speculation on the relative positions of starts billions of years in the future. Now We Can See the Moon creeps up on you, seeps into you, and leaves your mind crackling long after you've finished the final chapter."
