Some brief overview of book

Winner of the Lascaux Prize in Fiction One of The Millions' Most Anticipated Books of the Year A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice Named a Best Book of the Year by Shelf Awareness and One of the Best Environmental Fiction Books of the Year by Earther A warmhearted comedy of errors set in the worlds harshest place, Ashley Shelby's South Pole Station is a wry and witty debut novel about the courage it takes to band together when everything around you falls apart. Do you have digestion problems due to stress? Do you have problems with authority?

How many alcoholic drinks to you consume a week? Would you rather be a florist or a truck driver? These are some of the questions that determine if you have what it takes to survive at South Pole Station, a place with an average temperature of -54F and no sunlight for six months a year.

Cooper Gosling has just answered five hundred of them. Her results indicate she is abnormal enough for Polar life. Coopers not sure if this is an achievement, but she knows she has nothing to lose.

Unmoored by a recent family tragedy, shes adrift at thirty anddespite her early promise as a painteron the verge of sinking her career. So she accepts her place in the National Science Foundations Artists & Writers Program and flees to Antarctica, where she encounters a group of misfits motivated by desires as ambiguous as her own. The only thing the Polies have in common is the conviction that they dont belong anywhere else.

Then a fringe scientist arrives, claiming climate change is a hoax. His presence will rattle this already-imbalanced community, bringing Cooper and the Polies to the center of a global controversy and threatening the ancient ice chip they call home.
