    On a land that man seems to have deserted, where water has become rare, all living creatures - "mobile as well as immobile" - suffer from thirst. Plants are dying. Aquatic animals too, trapped by the evaporation of their homes. On their return from their long journeys, the migratory birds bring no good news: drought is everywhere.

    About the author: "I was born on the other side of the sea, in a land of eternal summer. Since then, I've crossed this sea several times in each direction and I've always come back, but I've never been able to get rid of all this jumble of words. I've been a farmer, a lumberjack, a removal man, a bricklayer. And then one day I had to face the facts: words were stronger than I was, they were threatening to take control. So I started writing and I haven't stopped since. I haven't stopped telling stories, inventing lives. Trying to shed a little light.
