I'm going to be INTERVIEWING Eowyn Ivey soon, so I've just created a post called "Upcoming: author interview with Eowyn Ivey (the Snow Child) and "Art of Writing" sessions". Please see: http://wp.me/p1WPf3-4j
Please drop by for more on her, the interview and `The Snow Child' (including where to pre-order your copy RIGHT NOW).
I am the proud father-in-law of Eowyn. I read the book while spending a week in my son and her home last July-August, and I have been ga-ga about it ever since. I think it will become a classic of Alaskana, thus filling a gap that was not previously occupied. There is Michener's "Alaska," of course, but Eowyn's novel paints the landscape, characterizes the people, and catches the feel of the sourdough lifestyle best of all. She and Sam live it, and it is sort of paradisiacal. I know because I have lived it too. James Ivey (MD)
