INTERNATIONAL PARTNERS: We will publish simultaneously with Simon & Schuster (US) and Quercus (UK).
WELL-CONNECTED AUTHOR: Thea has written for major media outlets including Salon, the Guardian, the Southampton Review, Bitch magazine, and many others; she is well-connected and poised to make her mark in the world of fiction.
PERFECT GENRE ENTRY: In keeping with the new trend of “literary dystopian” fiction like Station Eleven, American War, The End We Start From, and Zone One, this hits the sweet spot of smart, engaging fiction which asks big questions even as it takes readers on an unforgettable journey.
TOPICAL SUBJECT MATTER: With stories about migration, immigration, displacement, and worker rights continually in the media, Polly’s struggles to acclimatize to the bleak corporate hellscape in which she finds herself will resonate in a very timely fashion.
“Amidst the breathtaking world Thea Lim has created in An Ocean of Minutes is a profound meditation on the inhumanity of class and the limits of love. It takes immense talent to render cruelty both accurately and with honest beauty - Lim has pulled it off. This is a story about the malleability of time, but at its core lives something timeless.”—OMAR EL AKKAD, author of American War
“An Ocean of Minutes offers that rare combination of a provocative speculative setting, masterfully elegant writing, and a story that moves and haunts long after the last page. Thea Lim is an enormously talented writer.”—David Chariandy, author of Brother and Soucouyant
