I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

Man Who Lost the Sea

Cover of Man Who Lost the Sea.

Stranded, buried in the sand, the old man looks at the sea, while the young boy runs around with his model helicopter. Short story, published in 1959 and now available freely online. Hits its emotional notes very well.

This book is part of the 2022 Backlog Incident.
