Praise for Henriette Lazaridis

"At first, it's the forbidding ice sheets of Antarctica, a 'place that offers beauty with a fist, ' that dominate Henriette Lazaridis's ingenious new novel. When the two strands of the narrative unite and then combust, the 'terra nova' of the novel's title turns out to be a 'new world' not of the land but of the mind."-- "New York Times Book Review"
"As if Jack London and Anita Shreve had a literary baby: an absolutely immersive story of Antarctic survival, suffrage, a love triangle, art, and betrayal. Engrossing from the first moment to the last page, when you'll immediately return to the beginning to start again."-- "Jenna Blum, New York Times
"What would you risk to fulfill a desperate ambition? Whom would you betray if you had to--and at what cost to you, the ones you love, the world? Set against the dazzling frozen backdrop of 1910 Antarctica, this is a mesmerizer about love, rivalry, and the indominable strength of one of the best, most complex female characters I've read in years."-- "Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of With"
"The novel's strength lies in its impressive marriage of art and exploration. Lazaridis relishes in long, gorgeous descriptions of scenes and explanations of shot-framing and darkroom photo processing as intimate as a love letter. This underlying stream of artistic enchantment hits the mark and keeps the pages turning."-- "Associated Press"
