UC Writing Centre instructor and UC alumna Thea Lim's novel The Ocean of Minutes has been bought by Penguin and is scheduled to be released in Summer 2018.
A brief synopsis: "In September 1981, Polly and Frank, a young couple from Buffalo, New York, arrive at the time travel terminal at Houston Intercontinental Airport in a quarantine taxi. One will travel, and one will stay. The Ocean of Minutes is a timely exploration of migration and the devastating love story of two people who are at once mere weeks and many years apart.”
Thea, who took a year off from teaching to look after her newborn and write, plans to return to the Writing Centre in 2017-18.
