This is the book a Victorian polar explorer would have dreamed by his whale lamp, the sled dogs snoring and farting, as a time traveler from the 60s with copies of 1984 and Brave New World tucked under his arm whispered in his ear, barely heard over the crack of the ice. I found it poetic and mysterious, seen through a veil of velvet and steam. A beautiful tale sung by the Polar Kangaroo that echoes in the oddest places.
