This is both a wonderful historical novel and a spell-binding individual portrait . . . This is a marvellous translation of a masterly work
* * Observer * *

Nadolny brilliantly sets the narrative pace to the rhythms of the frozen landscape, and to the slowness which is bred by hunger

Time, action and vision - a magical hat-trick and one that this translation pays faithful tribute to, capturing grand adventures like a detailed painting

Sten Nadolny shipped us into beautiful, fatal Arctic wastes with his spellbinding novels

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
