Epigraph
(1) Was that what travel meant? An exploration of the deserts of memory, rather than those around me?
_____Claude Levi Strauss, Tristes Tropiques
Dedication
For Ellesmere, that it will stay, eternally, mysteriously, its own geografictione.
First words
Home: what you visit and abandon: too much forgotten/too much remembered. An asylum for your origins, your launchings and departures, the derivations of your dream geographies.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0889950601, Paperback)


Internationally acclaimed novelist Aritha van Herk takes geography and fiction and creates of them a geografictioneóa fiction mapped on the lines of geography, a geography following the course of fiction. A new reading of Tolstoy's tragic heroine Anna Karenina and a sojourn at Ellesmere Island come together, and the North becomes an incomparably beautiful place, a living, unread, feminine landscape.
