What Love Can't Do
by Kitty Beer
A daringly honest portrayal of the consequences of global warming, What Love Can't Do explores family relationships against the dramatic background of environmental collapse.
Beer's prophetic look at the future seems not only eerily plausible but entirely possible. Her characters, amid rising environmental havoc and resulting social confusion, still search for things of value, striving to retain their humanity in the face of its opposite.
William Routhier, Facets magazine
The story is a good one, addressing questions of sexuality, environmentalism, totalitarianism, and the ability of the heart to love almost irregardless of external circumstances.
Steven Lee Beeber, Editor of AWAKE! A Reader for the Sleepless
A strong literary tone runs through a set of themes which are finally beginning to penetrate the consciousness of the mainstream, without being alarmist or polemic -- rather, examining the human element, the experiences of individuals caught within the machine.
Anthony Ravenscroft, Crossquarter Publishing Group
I like the idea of an apocalyptic chaos that is not about bombs, macho guys, and machine guns, but about plausible outcomes of policies that have been and are being made by our government. It all comes across as dry arguments over the language of policy in Senate committees so I don't think people realize what it could actually mean.
Martin A. Levin, Professor of Political Science, Brandeis University
Well-written, engaging, and thought provoking.
