Encyclopedia of Snow

Sarah Emily Miano

A lost notebook is discovered, its pages filled with an array of entries about snow. Leafing through each item in turn, it becomes apparent that the selection is not as haphazard as first glances might suggest. Scientific description, historical accounts and fantastical incidents slowly, teasingly unfold to reveal a series of love-stories, at the heart of which is one particular story – a story that twists and threads through the various excerpts and extracts to form a letter to an absent lover.

'Glints with myth and magic . . . bold and exhilarating' Observer

‘All the delicacy of an intricate piece of ice sculpture . . . The effect of the different entries swirling and spiraling is kaleidoscopic’ Sunday Telegraph
