How Far the Light Reaches, by Sabrina Imbler
Imbler’s debut collection is a glimmering and eye-opening work. Merging memoir and science reporting, these ten essays dive deep both literally and figuratively, covering the lives of goldfish, sand strikers, minuscule jellyfish, and sperm whales. Each piece draws illuminating parallels between the sea creature at its center and Imbler’s own experiences, begging the reader to question just how different we are from our underwater neighbors. Informative and tender, this book will teach you and change you in equal measure.
