What happens on the ice, stays on the ice.

Especailly if it is actually frozen to the ice, I would imagine.

Check out this new book:

Winter-Over is a seriocomic, slightly obscene novel that tells the story of a year at Amundsen-Scott Station at the South Pole, including Cooper Gosling’s eponymous “winter-over” (very few people stay at the station over the polar winter due to harsh physical and psychological conditions). She is one of only a handful of women at the Pole, and must navigate the claustrophobic interior landscape of a remote station populated by a collection of people who don’t believe they belong anywhere else on earth—and with no flights in or out from February to October. Stuart Dybek, who awarded a fiction prize to the short story on which this novel is based, wrote that the characters here “retain what humanity they can in a place where the sentimentality scale measures absolute zero.”

This is a kickstarter project.

One thought on “What happens on the ice, stays on the ice.

  1. Dey’s nuts. Almost everyone I’ve met who’d stayed the winter at the Antarctic had returned to that desolate place; I tell ’em the cold must have frozen the sensible part of their brain. I’m sure folks would find the book interesting – especially if they haven’t already heard all the war stories.
