The Rainmaker’s Mistake
“See you there. In the free.” This is the closing statement in Erna Brodber's fourth novel, The Rainmaker's Mistake (2007). In the novel, Brodber creatively imagines a past for the New World present, taking advantage of the space literary speculation and science fiction offer to create a counterhistory of the present. - Kelly Baker Josephs, Small Axe
