Fleeing a hostile mother, seventeen-year-old Grace Alter takes refuge in Arctic Canada with her novelist father, Jared, who yearns for a bestseller or suicide. Their cabin faces Arnaud, a French nudist and retired nuclear arms dealer. Farther south, a couple named Hooper is rumored to greet UFOs and host alien orgies. By the day, emerging winter threatens starvation, hypothermia and rabid polar bears. Of more immediate concern, Arnaud's sale of bogus uranium to jihadists has targeted him with a fatwa, and assassination. If that isn't enough distraction for Grace, Jared's mail order Russian lover arrives by dogsled, its team lashed along by a Siberian shaman. Unable to cope, Grace coaxes the shaman into a ride to the Hoopers. There she discovers both murdered, signaling the assassin's approach. This rollicking picaresque odyssey is sharpened by Grace's trenchant, neurotically witty monologue. Her diary entries are brilliantly narcissistic, their tone edgy and provocative. If you favor a darkly comic coming-of-age satire that pits situational absurdity against stark terror, this is definitely for you.
