A “marvelously amusing” political fable in which part of the European continent breaks off and drifts away on its own (Publishers Weekly, starred review). A Nobel Prize winner who has been called “the García Márquez of Portugal” (New Statesman) chronicles world events on a human scale in this exhilarating allegorical novel. One day, quite inexplicably, the Iberian Peninsula simply breaks free from the European continent and begins to drift as if it were a sort of stone raft. Panic ensues as residents and tourists attempt to escape, while crowds gather on cliffs to watch the newly formed island sail off into the sea. Meanwhile, five people on the island are drawn together—first by a string of surreal events and then by love. Taking to the road to explore the limits of their now finite land, they find themselves adrift in a world made new by this radical shift in perspective. As bureaucrats ponder what to do about their unusual predicament, the intertwined lives of these five strangers are clarified and forever changed by a physical, spiritual, and sexual voyage to an unknown destination. At once an epic adventure and a profound fable about the state of the European project, The Stone Raft is a “hauntingly lyrical narrative with political, social, and moral underpinnings” (Booklist) that “may be Saramago’s finest work” (Los Angeles Times). Translated from the Portuguese by Giovanni Pontiero

A flock of birds was moving toward me along the river, hovering over something floating on the water. It drifteddownstream, closer and closer, until finally it bumped up against the dock. Though it was covered with leaves and branches, now I could tell that it was a raft. I reached down and pushed some of the leaves aside. Beneath them was a drawing of a rabbit. It looked like those ancient cave paintings I'd seen in books--just outlines, but wild and fast and free. Nicky isn't one bit happy about spending the summer with his grandma in the Wisconsin woods, but them the raft appears and changes everything. As Nicky explores, the raft works a subtle magic, opening up the wonders all around him--the animals of river and woods, his grandmother's humor and wisdom, and his own special talent as an artist.

A “sucker punch of a novel” about Day Zero—when a singular event wipes out all memories of the past, and humanity faces an unimaginable future (Publishers Weekly). Day Zero. It was the end and the beginning. A singular event that simply erased all human memory. There was no reaction, no outcry or shock . . . just nothing. For nothing had ever existed before Day Zero, and nothing had ever happened. Mankind’s history had become a blank slate. Now, people are being herded like cattle into isolated, draconian communities for some unknown purpose. It is in one of these communes that Kayle Jenner finds himself, with nothing to live for—except the vague, haunting thought of someone he used to know: his son. After he makes an escape, Kayle discovers a broken world ruled by an oppressive regime that rewards defiance with death. As he wanders the broken land, his memories slowly resurface, driving him on a relentless search for his boy that will bring him face to face with humanity from its most noble to its most depraved . . . until Kayle discovers the shattering truth about Day Zero. And the truth may just destroy all that remains of Kayle Jenner. This “enchanting, captivating, intriguing” dystopian tale is a brutal journey through a terrifying landscape—and a world borne of oblivion (Jason M. Hough, New York Times–bestselling author).

Over the past several years, the news media has brought the Great Pacific garbage patch -- that famous Texas-sized patch of litter swirling in the ocean -- into the public consciousness. When Marcus Eriksen co-founded the 5 Gyres Institute and set out to study marine pollution, he found that the reality is even more dire: instead of a stable mass of litter, he discovered that a plastic smog of microparticles permeates the world's oceans, defying easy clean-up efforts. What's more, these microplastics have seeped into the food chain, threatening marine animals and humans alike. Far from being a gloomy treatise on an environmental catastrophe, Junk Raft tells the exciting story of Eriksen's fight to raise awareness and solve the problem of plastic pollution. The backbone of the book is Eriksen's voyage from Los Angeles to Hawaii aboard his homemade junk raft, and along the way he recounts his successful efforts to fight corporate influence and demand that plastics producers take responsibility for a problem they've created. Eriksen provides concrete, actionable solutions and an empowering message that it's up to bold, brash, unapologetically activist citizen scientists to challenge the status quo for the sake of the planet.

Stephen Baxter's highly acclaimed first novel and the beginning of his stunning Xeelee Sequence. A spaceship from Earth accidentally crossed through a hole in space-time to a universe where the force of gravity is one billion times as strong as the gravity we know. Somehow the crew survived, aided by the fact that they emerged into a cloud of gas surrounding a black hole, which provided a breathable atmosphere. Five hundred years later, their descendants still struggle for existence, divided into two main groups. The Miners live on the Belt, a ramshackle ring of dwellings orbiting the core of a dead star, which they excavate for raw materials. These can be traded for food from the Raft, a structure built from the wreckage of the ship, on which a small group of scientists preserve the ancient knowledge which makes survival possible. Rees is a Miner whose curiosity about his world makes him stow away on a flying tree - just one of the many strange local lifeforms - carrying trade between the Belt and the Raft.
