Praise

"A triumph . . . I cannot believe that anything better will ever be written about Antarctica." –Daily Telegraph

"Compelling . . . leaves the reader with a visceral understanding of the mysterious, even sublime power the poles have exerted
on the human imagination, and the desolate beauty that resides there amid the glaciers and icebergs and penguins."
–Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"I have read many accounts of polar exploration, but never one which so touchingly describes its emotional topography. . . . What she has done could not be done better." –Richard Eyre, The Independent

"The first funny book about Antarctica." –Los Angeles Times
