It is 2015. Edmée and Pete are engineers on a remote research station in Antarctica, Project White. Pete has come to find peace among the practical rituals of life on the station. Edmée, the only woman on the base, works to secure communication with the outside world. Both are running from tragic events at home, and yet even as they try to escape the past, they are under scrutiny from the spirits haunting the station. These ghostly voices draw the reader ever more tightly into the story.
In this setting of magnificent desolation, just fifteen kilometers from the South Pole, a love affair begins to flourish - until there is a catastrophic power failure at the base . . .
Marie Darrieussecq's beautiful, atmospheric prose has found its perfect location in the South Pole. Fusing elements of the thriller with a love story and the supernatural, White is an extraordinary achievement.
