First Hot Mess review, from Foreword

by Jeff Fleischer

The first review of my new book “A Hot Mess” came out this week, and it’s a good one. It will appear in the November/December issue of Foreword Reviews, but I’m able to share it now.

An excerpt:

With a journalist’s knack for finding the human angle behind compelling issues, Fleischer begins with the Tuvalu Islanders, whose livelihoods are threatened by rising sea levels, and whose story is a signpost of the climate crisis. This dynamic introduction illuminates how the “worst-case forecasts” have already arrived, setting the stage for a skillful blend of honed facts and historical overviews, from industrialization to modern politics and its too-frequent deference to energy companies. The result is an incisive portrait of how people arrived at a pivotal moment.
