A profound, deeply reflective account of a French journalist's escape from the pressures of life in Paris to an isolated hut on the shores of Lake Baikal. With over 70 books and a few supplies, Tesson sets up camp for six months to plumb the depths of solitude against the cold, contemplative landscape of Siberia in deep winter. A Thoreauvian masterpiece, without the moralizing, and with plenty of vodka and Tabasco sauce and a few hardy visitors to keep his thoughtful revelations company.

As Night Falls: Sandy Tremont has always tried to give her family everything. But, as the sky darkens over the Adirondacks and a heavy snowfall looms, an escaped murderer with the power to take it all away draws close.
