Praise

Kiriyama Prize Notable Book For 2006

Thousands of books have been written about the Arctic aborigines by intruders from the south. Yuri Rytkheu has turned the skin inside out and written about the way the Arctic people view outsiders. A Chukchi him- self, Yuri writes with passion, strength, and beauty of a world we others have never understood. A splendid book. —Farley Mowat

Rarely has humanity’s relationship to nature been so beautifully and vividly depicted . . . It recalls, in both substance and style, the best work of Jack London and Herman Melville, and it is a novel in the grandest sense of the word. —Neal Pollack

A hypnotic, shimmering new novel. . . . One emerges from the novel and its sudden, jarring, most unusual but spot-on ending dazed, dazzled, snow-blind. —The San Diego Union Tribune

A Dream in Polar Fog gave me the same haunting and powerful reading experience as did Melville’s travel fictions. Yuri Rytkheu is a world-class writer. Part lyrical ethnography, part uncanny adventure movie, part historical saga, part spectral tone poem, this novel miraculously brings Siberia to the center of our lives. —Howard Norman
