More than a novel, Waterless is a possible, yet unwanted reality. People don’t want to face this ghastly idea because it is terrifying. Now, imagine that you combine that with a group of citizens who, despite living together, have different opinions on the subject? When one spouse seems to worship the water, the other doesn’t give a flying dime about it.
Anyway, we are always going to have Coca-Cola, right?
Yeah, but, what if all the liquids evaporate at once?
Waterless is the product of a nightmare Gabriel Lucatero had years ago, a night when he actually had to sleep naked because it was so stifling hot.
Don’t sweat it. Just read it.
