Muri by Ashley Shelby


Muri is based on Herman Melville’s novella Benito Cereno and takes place in the near future on an earth ravaged by cataclysmic climate change. A ship captain and his team have been tasked with a globe-crossing adventure: relocate the last of the Arctic’s polar bears to Antarctica where the animals may have a shot at survival. As the story unfolds, Shelby delves into the ethics of species relocation and the psychological strain of living in an age of climate change. Description from Amy Brady, Yale Climate Connections
