Paolo Bacigalupi on a new genre of cli-fi and his novel titled THE WATER KNIFE



“The future was coming faster than I could write about it”

from the BBC: ''There’s a new genre of fiction known as “cli-fi”, which looks specifically at life in a future ravaged by climate change. One of its authors is Paolo Bacigalupi, whose most recent novel, "The Water Knife", imagines a world where water is increasingly scarce and sparks conflict between states. He tells Owen Bennett Jones about how he thinks humanity can adapt to this future, and what he's hoping to inspire in his readers.''
