2013 Oregon Book Awards Finalist
Antarktikos by Andrea Stolowitz
Somewhere between here and Antarctica lie several points on a continuum: Susan, a writer at an artist’s residency at the South Pole; Captain Robert Falcon Scott, leader of the British Antarctic expedition of 1912; and Hilary, Susan’s twenty-one year-old daughter. When an insomniac EMT becomes the hapless link among them, time collapses, geographies blend, and destinies emerge.
