In a parched and frightening future in which two-thirds of the world’s population is expected to be living under severe water shortages, The Straw That Broke is a modern allegory, shedding light on the desperate clashes over precious water, and on our imperiled future.
In ‘The Straw That Broke’ Greg Zeigler has written both a wonderful novel of sharp characters and a great story. He has also predicted our future.
We can live without oil, but we can’t live without water, and Greg Zeigler has written a novel of intrigue and seduction showing just how that will play out in the near future. ‘The Straw That Broke’ is a story to be savored.” – Tim Sandlin, author
