Far North


About the Book

Far North is a deeply haunting speculative novel about the lone survivor of a settlement of American pioneers in Arctic Russia. Driven to leave the settlement by isolation and loneliness, the survivor, Makepeace, begins a journey through the ravaged Siberian landscape and encounters an unravelling civilization where the human capacity for brutality and tenderness is taken beyond its limits.

With echoes of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road and Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn, Far North is a stark page-turner that depicts a world that is at once remote from contemporary reality and a possible consequence of it. This dark and memorable book is the Canadian debut of a powerful talent.
