Praise

“The form and sweep of the novel beg comparison to Moby-Dick . . . Nothing prepares you for the visceral chill of The Rifles.” –Atlanta Journal & Constitution 

“Striking . . . The Rifles recreates the heroic, harrowing dimensions, tragic, fatuous, and comic of the Franklin expedition. . . . It presents a vivid picture of life in the Arctic Circle today, both what seems eternal about it and what has changed.” –The Boston Globe

“An ambitious literary gambit. . . Sharp, often lyrical, and sometimes achingly beautiful.” –The Washington Post
