Synopsis: Down in the deep, there is no wind or snow or rain; just a wash of perfect topaz that glimmers upon all it holds. And though the ocean is the very womb of all Earthling life, we as humans know more about stars in distant galaxies than we do about its deepest depths. Where waters are most staggeringly abysmal, we've no means to tread; and so it comes as no surprise that very little is known of the Sea King and his subjects. . . Venture down into the kingdom of the fish-people, a utopian civilization hidden beneath leagues of crystal blue where, for all its harmony and beauty, a little mermaid still yearns for the world above the waves. This tale is a familiar one, for many have visited these waters before in the hundred and seventy-five years since it was first told. Now, in the year 2012, we are invited once again to experience the magic of Hans Christian Andersen's iconic mermaid, set against the backdrop of a mystical underwater kingdom and at the top, a modern world beside the sea. In this brilliantly spun adaptation, lush and sweeping homage is paid to the original, more poignant trajectory of one of the most enchantingly dark love stories ever written. In this whimsical yet affecting retrofit, author Leslie Phelan tells the famous tale in a voice that's all her own, transplanting the veins of an old, beloved classic into the heart of a brand new adventure. Re-imagined boldly and colourfully, Little Lovesick speaks of the exquisite pain of loving things just out of reach, while delivering a sobering snapshot of humanity in the twenty-first century and the tumultuous marriage that binds people to their oceans. This tribute, as beautifully wrought as it is at times shocking and raw, takes place at the point where two worlds collide, and an unforgettable ascension begins.
