"Atmospheric and moving, this is an impressively assured debut."--Publishers Weekly "First-time novelist expertly fictionalizes one of WWII's least-known stories...a haunting story that will remind many of Ondaatje's The English Patient-and that merits the comparison."--Kirkus Reviews "A poignant and lyrical first novel written with the assurance of a master--Alaska is beautifully realized in all its harshness and native magic."--T. C. Boyle, Drop City "A gifted and interesting writer, a writer to notice, a writer to watch, a writer any reader of serious fiction will be proud to have read."--Alan Cheuse, NPR's All Things Considered "Beautifully written and astonishingly well researched.... It was the setting that swept me away, but the characters that I will remember." --Mark Johnson, The San Jose Mercury News From the Hardcover edition.
