Eyes of the Rigel
White Shadowav Roy Jacobsen169
The highly anticipated sequel to International Booker- and Dublin Impac-shortlisted The Unseen No-one can be alone on an island . . . But Ingrid is alone on Barroy, the island that bears her name, and the war of her childhood has been replaced by a new, more terrible present: Norway is under the Nazi boot. When the bodies from a bombed battleship begin to wash up on the shore, Ingrid can't know that one will be alive, and warm enough to erase a lifetime of loneliness--nor can she imagine what suffering she will endure in protecting her lover, and the subsequent journey she will face, wrenched from her island once more, to return home. Or that, in the midst of the horrors of battle, among refugees fleeing famine and scorched earth, she'll be given a gift, the value of which is beyond measure. The highly anticipated follow-up to Roy Jacobsen's International Booker and Dublin Impac Award-shortlisted The Unseen, White Shadow is a vividly observed exploration of conflict, love, and human endurance.

Praise for The Unseen "Even by his high standards, his magnificent new novel The Unseen is Jacobsen's finest to date, as blunt as it is subtle and is easily among the best books I have ever read."--Irish Times "A beautifully crafted novel . . . Quite simply a brilliant piece of work . . . Rendered beautifully into English by Don Bartlett and Don Shaw, The Unseen is a towering achievement that would be a deserved Booker International winner."--New European "A profound interrogation of freedom and fate, as well as a fascinating portrait of a vanished time, written in prose as clear and washed clean as the world after a storm."--The Guardian "The subtle translation, with its invented dialect, conveys a timeless, provincial voice . . . The Unseen is a blunt, brilliant book."--Financial Times
