Exploring the mercurial myths of mermaids, nautical lore of drift bottles, and unmapped beach parties at the Pacific, Drink questions the changeable stories we tell of water, those connected to plane disappearances, downed ships, lost girls, and forgotten lives. Drink seeks to understand what terrorizes us, be they forgotten messages, murdered sisters, or women living in water.

Wiseman’s raw and elegant Drink plunges the depths of the ocean, of love, and of memory to search the wreckage of all that is lost, and the life that brims beneath it.
– Alyse Knorr
