Abstract

Icarus wants to rewrite his story. Yet the chance of finding a happy ending appear slim when he accidentally smuggles carbon dioxide into the atmosphere during yet another fall to earth, metamorphoses back to life as a woman and is informed by a nearby talking bicycle that they’ve been sent across Europe in search of a solution to climate change. Through the Weather Glass tells a fantastic version of the true story of the author’s struggles to understand environmental change through the persona of Icarus and her bicycle as they embark on a genre-twisting and gender-bending road trip to an Ancient Greek climate conference in Athens hosted by Zeus.
