u003cbu003eA thrilling and propulsive novel of an Antarctica expedition gone wrong and its far-reaching consequences for the explorers and their families leaves the reader moved and subtly changed, as if she had become part of the story (Hilary Mantel).u003c/bu003e u003cpu003eu003cbu003e"McGregor's depiction of speechlessness, both metaphorical and physical, makes the novel much more interesting than if he had provided a page-turner about a botched expedition in Antarctica . . . McGregor's carefully composed dialogue, filled with the repetition of so few words, had an eerie effect on me: for several days my own inner dialogue was often composed of the same words, as though I, too, was discovering how they could express drastically different emotions yet remain unreadable to the world. --Yiyun Li, u003ciu003eNew York Review of Booksu003c/iu003eu003c/bu003e u003cpu003eu003ciu003eRemember the training: find shelter or make shelter, remain in place, establish contact with other members of the party, keep moving, keep calm.u003c/iu003e u003cpu003eRobert 'Doc' Wright, a veteran of Antarctic surveying, was there on the ice when the worst happened. He holds within him the complete story of that night--but depleted by the disaster, Wright is no longer able to communicate the truth. Instead, in the wake of the catastrophic expedition, he faces the most daunting adventure of his life: learning a whole new way to be in the world. Meanwhile Anna, his wife, must suddenly scramble to navigate the sharp and unexpected contours of life as a caregiver. u003cpu003eFrom the Booker Prize-longlisted, American Academy of Arts & Letters Award-winning author of u003ciu003eReservoir 13u003c/iu003e, this is a novel every bit as mesmerizing as its setting. Tenderly unraveling different notions of heroism through the rippling effects of one extraordinary expedition on an ordinary family, u003ciu003eLean Fall Standu003c/iu003e explores the indomitable human impulse to turn our experiences into stories--even when the words may fail us.
