“Based on interviews and advice from leading glacial, ocean, climate, and geographical scientists, and interwoven with personal, historical, and mythological stories, Magnason’s response is a rich and compelling work of narrative nonfiction that illustrates the reality of climate change—and offers hope in the face of an uncertain future. Moving from an obituary for a glacier to exhortation for a heightened understanding of human time and our obligations to one another, throughout history and across the globe. On Time and Water is both deeply personal and globally-minded: a travel story, a world history, and a desperate plea to live in harmony with future generations. Already a massive bestseller in Iceland, and selling in thirty territories around the world, this is a book unlike anything that has yet been published on the current climate emergency.”

Magnason has created a masterpiece, staunchly scientific and highly informative, yet utterly raw in its humanity.
