About the Author

Thea Lim & An Ocean of Minutes

An Ocean of Minutes is the first novel from Singapore-born and Toronto-based author Thea Lim - and it’s the perfect pick for your January book club.

The novel follows Polly, a furniture upholsterer, and her bartender boyfriend Frank, who are madly in love. It’s 1981, and a deadly flu pandemic has gripped America. When Frank catches the virus, Polly agrees to a radical plan that will save his life. In exchange for lifesaving treatment for Frank, Polly will travel twelve years into the future, working as a bonded laborer to pay off the debt. The couple agree to meet in Galveston, Texas in 1993.

But when Polly is re-routed an extra five years into the future, Frank is nowhere to be found. Alone in a divided America, with no status and no money, Polly is desperate to find Frank. As danger mounts and her search demands unthinkable sacrifice, she is forced to ask herself: what does it cost to hold on to the past, and what does it cost to let it go?
