Read in October, 2011

There's a deceptive stillness about Saliba's writing, an emphasis not on event but the tiny internal creakings that precede. Her characters are imminent, teetering on the verge of changes that they both fear and long for. In the end it is the landscape that leads them, an Alaska magically evoked by the author's spare prose and the beautiful artwork by Allison Colpoys. It is a book trembling with possibility, to be approached quietly and unarmed lest its meaning bolt.
