Praise

“Mesmerizing…harrowing in its emotional intensity, haunting in its evocation of a distant time and place.” —Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

“Superb, perfect, one might even say—soaring.” —The Seattle Times

“Lyrical passages…reads like profound poetry…the most enterprising and successful portrait of a man in heat by a female writer since Joyce Carol Oates’ tumultuously orgasmic What I Lived For.” —Alan Cheuse, Chicago Tribune

“Intricately wrought…Harrison imbues her solitary silence with a stately air of self-possession.” —Maria Russo, The New York Times Book Review

“This…mesmerizing tale is dizzying in intensity; its startling story twists are borne along by prose as austere and powerful as Alaska’s icescape. The novel’s undertow of anguish will resonate with anyone who has tried to make sense of desire….Chilled to perfection.” —People
