The Cloud Atlas by Liam Callanan

From the TALK series, World War II Generation
Discussion led by Anne Hawkins.

A priest, at the deathbed of an Alaskan shaman, recalls the events that brought them together, including stories of love, magic, spirituality, and the secret history of Japanese balloon warfare. A cloud atlas, the shaman says, "would not be a map of where things are now," but "where they will be." Callanan's novel is a "cloud atlas" in reverse: telling us where we are by looking at where we have been.
