* This is both a wonderful historical novel and a spell-binding individual portrait ... This is a marvellous translation of a masterly work. The Observer * Time, action and vision - a magical hat-trick and one that this translation pays faithful tribute to, capturing grand adventures like a detailed painting. The Scotsman * Nadolny brilliantly sets the narrative pace to the rhythms of the frozen landscape, and to the 'slowness which is bred by hunger. -- Robert Macfarlane * Sten Nadolny shipped us into beautiful, fatal Arctic wastes with his spellbinding novels. Boyd Tonkin * Slow movements of emotion and plot pull the reader expertly in, and the book with its self-consciously ponderous charm, offers all the pleasures of the best historical fiction.
