The Sinking of Tuvalu

A time-document of a nation may be told in many ways, and the telling may serve many needs. The narrative may be concerned with the way in which people think about the past, present and future. The document may be a record of cherished stories. It may be a device for informing, for entertaining or for stating a people’s identity, showing who they are. It may be all or some of these things. The Sinking of Tuvalu attempts to be most of them. The book tries to show the uniqueness of a small and fragile nation from a personal point of view in a 240 page book.
