Skating to Antarctica, Paperback Book

Description

This strange and brilliant book recounts Jenny Diski's journey to Antarctica last year, intercut with another journey into her own heart and soul...a book of dazzling variety, which weaves disquisitions on indolence, truth, inconsistency, ambiguousness, the elephant seal, Shackleton, boredom and over and over again memory, into a sparse narrative, caustic observation and vivid description of the natural world.

While Diski's writing is laconic, her images are haunting.' Elspeth Barker, Independent on Sunday
