This long thin line
Would it be fair of me to simply call Inga Abele’s High Tide, and Kaija Straumanis’ translation of it, fantastic and leave it at that? No dearest internets, I supposed you’d never let me get off so easily. You always want more. Fine.
High Tide is a novel told in mostly reverse chronological order. If the first thought that pops into your head is Christopher Nolan’s Memento (bonus points to you if the first thought you had was Christopher Nolan’s Following) then you’ve sort of got the idea, but Abele’s tale is far less action oriented and far more cerebral an experience.
