Beschreibung

For the first time in paperback, here is the bestselling novel by "a writer of extraordinary gifts” (Tobias Wolff). Stunning, hypnotic, spare, The Seal Wife tells the story of a young scientist and his consuming love for a woman known only as the Aleut, a woman who refuses to speak.

A novel of passions both dangerous and generative, The Seal Wife explores the nature of desire and its ability to propel an individual beyond himself and outside convention. Kathryn Harrison brilliantly re-creates the Alaskan frontier during the period of the First World War as she explores with deep understanding the interior landscape of the human psyche—a landscape eerily continuous with the splendor and terror of the frozen frontier and the storms that blow over the earth and its face.

Portrait

Kathryn Harrison holds an eclectic blend of science, marketing and art skills. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology/ Psychology from Queen's University, an MBA in Marketing from McMaster University, worked for over a decade as a Communications professional and then went on to earn a Fine Art Diploma from the Toronto School of Art.

Stirred by her personal experience with her mother's dementia, Kathryn wrote and illustrated this, her first picture book, "Weeds in Nana's Garden". It is designed to support families and spread awareness of Alzheimer's Disease and other dementia, in honor of her mom, Bonnie Harrison.

In creating this book, Kathryn has been able to layer all her different abilities together. Her understanding of brain disease stems from her education in science. Real world experience in marketing and advertising has helped her to be a compelling storyteller. And, finally her art training is apparent in her rich, mixed media illustrations that take in the reader and hold them.

Kathryn creates from Cobourg, Ontario, Canada, a small town just outside of Toronto, where she is continuously inspired by her kids, her cats and her colorful natural surroundings.
