Luisa Martinez joins Norm Diamond for a dramatic reading from Kim Stanley Robinson’s 2020 novel The Ministry For the Future, after which Norm discusses the novel’s approach to climate change and social change more broadly. It’s rare in fiction for an author to attempt a plausible description and explanation for how fundamental social transformation could occur, but that’s what this unusual novel does. Norm situates it in the context of Robinson’s whole body of work exploring alternative social possibilities.
