Immaginate di essere un naufrago nel bel mezzo del Pacifico. Ci sono tre strade che potrebbero salvare voi e i vostri compagni, ma ognuna potrebbe portare a conseguenze terrificanti. Come scegliere? Raccontando la storia della baleniera Essex, la scrittrice Karen Thompson Walker ci mostra come la paura stimola l'immaginazione, costringendoci a immaginare scenari futuri e come comportarci in essi.
