How to Breathe Underwater

Field Reports from an Age of Radical Change

The long-form style of literary nonfiction found in magazines reaches its zenith when a talented writer makes connections and pieces together irregular themes to create an aha realization about mass culture. From online gambling to the Great Barrier Reef’s fate to Cuba’s irreverent economy and much more, this collection of essays documents a world undergoing radical change. Canadian Chris Turner has won nine National Magazine Awards and a President’s Medal for work in Fast Company, Time, Utne Reader, Shift, and The Walrus, among other publications.
