Review

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 --This text refers to the paperback edition.
