This winter I’ve been reading about serial killers, Arctic explorers pulling themselves up from deep ice crevasses only to die of starvation, and artists and lawyers wallowing in misery while living in million dollar apartments.

But now that it’s almost spring and the stores are stocked with chocolate eggs and marshmallow Peeps, I’m trying to cultivate my sunshine and unicorns side. My black cat Salem, who ran off in a thunderstorm and never returned, used to behead Peeps, but I’m not going to go there. Seriously, or rather happily, here are some YA links to make you smile.

    Hi,
    Did you read WEGENER’S JIGSAW (US title ONE DAY THE ICE WILL REVEAL ALL ITS DEAD) by British writer Clare Dudman ? A beautifully written and moving account of the explorations and subsequent death in the Arctic of Alfred Wegener, the German explorer.
    I have started translating it into French with a view to submitting a French version to French publishers: it’s well worth the effort.

    My comment was a follow-up of “Arctic explorers pulling themselves up from deep ice crevasses only to die of starvation,” in your post

  3. Thanks for the suggestion Jean-Paul. I’ll check out ONE DAY THE ICE WILL REVEAL ALL ITS DEAD. I was reading The White Lantern, by Evan Connell. Excellent essay on Arctic explorers.
