“We have pierced the veneer of outside things”: Four books about Antarctica

Frank Hurley, Aurora alongside the ice off Western Base, 1911-1914

I’ve just finished a long review of Alasdair McGregor’s excellent new anthology, Antarctica: that sweep of savage splendour. The review will appear in the September Australian Book Review, but in the meantime I thought I’d post a link to a review I wrote back in 2005 of four books about Antarctica (including McGregor’s very impressive biography of Frank Hurley, A Photographer’s Life) which may be of interest, as well as pointing to my review of Jon Ronson’s rather fab The Psychopath Test, which appeared in last week’s Weekend Australian.
