Midnight Sun (Goose Lane Editions, 2005)
Midnight Sun is an epic novel of the Canadian Arctic that unfolds across the tundra wilderness, in an Inuit village, on the moon, and under the sea. Unexpected, mysterious, and frightening events, exposing cross-cultural conflicts and misunderstndings, lead to an astonishing climax.
Lawrence Osgood comes to his novel with formidable credentials. [He] juggles narrative omniscience with ease, giving us true essence – the unspoken – from every angle.… The ricochet from elemental joy to terror is riveting.… Midnight Sun presents impeccable intentions, wonderful effects.
