Críticas:

[Blair s] external experiences are extraordinary, but it s what happens internally that both sets this memoir apart and gives it universal resonance. Indelible characters, adventurous spirit, and acute psychological insight combine in this multilayered debut. --Kirkus (Starred Review)"

Her easy, lyrical prose makes this search for identity and self a worthwhile read. --Publishers Weekly"

Readers will likely find that ice cubes are not the point, but rather the risky choices made while growing up and the struggles faced along the way. --Booklist"

The best work of non-fiction I ve read in 2016, "Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube" is this year s "H is For Hawk." --Library Bound"

If finishing Wild left a hole in your heart, we re willing to bet that Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube might be just the thing. --Bookish"

A delicate meditation from the frontiers of feminism, forged by the stark landscapes that prompted it. Braverman is a highly original talent. --Adrian Nicole LeBlanc, author of Random Family: Love, Drugs, Trouble, and Coming of Age in the Bronx"

Braverman has written a brilliant troubling of travel writing, of the exotic and the familiar and even of the self that survives to tell the tale. An astonishing debut. --Jeff Sharlet, author of The Family"

Like a 21st-century feminist reincarnation of Jack London, Braverman has crafted an eloquent and gripping tale of self-knowledge that leads through communion with ice and sea, dogs and sleds, and finds her, finally, at home amid the complex kindness of other human beings. --Sara Marcus, author of Girls to the Front"

Blair Braverman writes beautifully and baldly about the struggle to trust ourselves, especially as we re undermined by those who hope we won t. Braverman will stun you with the incredible events of her young life and her fierce courage. --Mac McClelland, author of Irritable Hearts"

An extraordinary debut, Ice Cube takes us to the coldest place on earth only to reveal its author s warm, witty, invincible heart. --Jennifer Finney Boylan, author of She's Not There and Stuck in the Middle With You"

Reseña del editor:

A rich and revelatory memoir of a young woman confronting her fears and finding home in the North.

Blair Braverman fell in love with the North at an early age: By the time she was nineteen, she had left her home in California, moved to Norway to learn how to drive sled dogs, and worked as a tour guide on a glacier in Alaska.

By turns funny and sobering, bold and tender, Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube charts Blair's endeavor to become a -tough girl---someone who courts danger in an attempt to become fearless. As she ventures into a ruthless arctic landscape, Blair faces down physical exhaustion--being buried alive in an ice cave, and driving a dogsled across the tundra through a whiteout blizzard in order to avoid corrupt police--and grapples with both love and violence as she negotiates the complex demands of being a young woman in a man's land.

Brilliantly original and bracingly honest, Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube captures the triumphs and the perils of the journey to self-discovery and independence in a landscape that is as beautiful as it is unforgiving.
