Why read it?
1 author picked Warmth as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?
Daniel Sherrell doesn’t even mention climate change in this book, choosing instead to refer repeatedly to “the Problem,” a locution that is itself a reminder of how thoroughly climate breakdown infuses the lives of those who have multiple decades of climate-changed life to look forward to. It’s both “a mist and a monolith,” as he writes, simultaneously ubiquitous and unseeable, a companion as unavoidable as his own character. By speaking directly to the future in what amounts to a young person’s memoir, Sherrell manages the neat trick of imagining how we might get there with our wits and hopes intact.
