Kim Stanley Robinson in conversation with Raghu Karnad
The Urgency of Borrowed Time

Kim Stanley Robinson, Raghu Karnad

Kim Stanley Robinson is considered as one of the greatest science fiction authors. Beginning with a deadly human-induced heatwave in India, his recent cli-fi novel, The Ministry for the Future, is a roadmap on which life on earth can survive. Written through fictional eye-witness accounts, despairing yet hopeful in equal measure, it masterfully lays bare the challenges our planet faces. In conversation with Raghu Karnad, journalist and author of Farthest Field, Robinson shares his vision of the not-too-distant future.
