Z is for Zuliani

July 12th, 2021

In Andy Zuliani’s Last Tide (NeWest Press $21.95) two burnt-out employees, Ana and Win are sent to an island in the Pacific Northwest. There they meet a climate scientist who is studying “the big one” – a cataclysmic earthquake and tsunami that will destroy the region – and an athletic-leisure clothing mogul building a vacation home that will double as an apocalyptic shelter. Then police investigators arrive, which throws everyone into an uproar and re-opens personal fault lines between the islanders. Zuliani is working on his PhD in American and French literature and is drawn to narratives of crisis and healing. 9781774390344
