Reviews

Praise for Names for the Sea

An infectious memoir from someone engagingly candid about her temporary homeland's limitations--and her own. --Kirkus

Moss . . . captures the fierce beauty of the Arctic landscape, the hardships of establishing family life as foreigners on a local salary in a nation suffering an economic collapse, and most interestingly, the paradoxes of the national character. --Booklist
