Advanced praise for Damnation Spring:
“[A] savvy debut…. A strong work of climate fiction…rooted in age-old man-versus-nature storytelling. An impressively well-turned story about how environmental damage creeps into our bodies, psyches, and economies.”
—Kirkus Reviews, Starred review
“Ash Davidson writes with unwavering compassion—for bitterly divided families, for those with fatally opposed ideologies, for our fragile natural world. Such is the rare generosity of spirit that has produced Damnation Spring—an elegant novel of profound power and grace.”
—Madhuri Vijay, author of The Far Field
