HOW FAR THE LIGHT REACHES A Life in Ten Sea Creatures

by | Read by Sabrina Imbler

Contemporary Culture • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Science journalist Sabrina Imbler narrates their own work, exploring the lives of deep-sea creatures and drawing parallels to their own experiences as a queer, biracial person seeking a community of their own. Imbler invites listeners to share in their fascination as they describe 10 unique sea creatures--from yeti crabs, who live precariously on hydrothermal vents, to the mother octopus who starved for 53 months while protecting her eggs. Imbler draws piercing and sometimes painful connections to their own life, describing their experiences with disordered eating, sexual assault, racism, and homophobia. While some of the creatures Imbler describes may seem bizarre--translucent orb-like salps, feral goldfish that grow to menacing proportions--their heartfelt narration ensures that listeners will recognize the beauty in them all.
