Julia Armfield’s Our Wives Under the Sea: A Novel follows marine biologist Leah, who left for a routine expedition months earlier, only this time, her submarine sank to the sea floor. Now Leah is changed. When she finally surfaces and returns home, her wife, Miri, knows something is wrong. Barely eating and lost in her thoughts, Leah rotates between rooms in their apartment, running the taps morning and night. Whatever happened in that vessel, whatever it was she was supposed to be studying before she and her crew were stranded, Leah carried part of it onto dry land and into their home. And as Miri searches for answers – desperate to understand what happened below the water – she must face the possibility that the woman she loves is slipping from her grasp. Joining to moderate is Kristen Arnett, author of With Teeth: A Novel.
