Samira and Greta lead a peaceful life. They have their own clearing in the woods, their own hut, and their son Kalil to keep them laughing. When Kalil returns home without their water rations, they find themselves in dangerous conflict with their local political leader, Well-Man. Set in a tense, segregated society, Thirst is a complex look at family and love in war-time. C.A. Johnson explores the politics of race and redefines community in this fierce post-apocalyptic story.
“. . . the war for resources is finally on our doorstep . . .”
