  • "An extraordinary, three-century braid of air and water: the way we float, the way we drown, the way we surface again against the odds."

    Sarah Leipciger is a novelist of wild landscapes, of rivers and coasts and forest. She captures the nature of solitude and stillness in a way that no other writer does. THE MOUNTAIN CAN WAIT was a wonder. COMING UP FOR AIR expands her range even further, exploring that eerie shoreline where land and ocean meet, where breathing becomes drowning, and life teeters on the very edge.
