Short-listed for 2018 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards novel of the year.

Thousands flee central Wellington as a far too common ‘once in a century’ storm descends. Roads are closed and all rail is halted. For their own safety, city workers are told that they must go home early.

Sita is a Tamil Sri Lankan refugee living in the Hutt Valley. She’s just had a call from her boss. If she doesn’t get to her cleaning job in the city she’ll lose her contract.

Sodden Downstream is Brannavan Gnanalingam’s fifth book. His previous novel – A Briefcase, Two Pies and a Penthouse – was longlisted for the 2017 Ockham NZ Book Awards fiction of the year. He lives in Wellington.
