Of Barbara Quick’s first novel, Northern Edge, Ursula K. Lequin writes, “Literary Alaska has always been male territory. This vivid and engaging novel locates Alaska – at last –in women’s experience and what an experience!” The novel has been nominated for the National Book Award. Quick is one of 25 authors selected by B. Dalton book stores for their “Discover: Great New Writers” program. She is a poet and has reviewed extensively for the New York Times Book Review.
