Bleaker House : Chasing My Novel to the End of the World
by Nell Stevens




Overview -
When she was twenty-seven, Nell Stevens--a lifelong aspiring novelist--won an all-expenses-paid fellowship to go anywhere in the world to write. Would she choose a glittering metropolis, a romantic village, an exotic paradise? Not exactly. Nell picked Bleaker Island, a snowy, windswept pile of rock in the Falklands. Other than sheep, penguins, paranoia, and the weather, there aren't many distractions, but as Nell soon discovers, total isolation and 1,085 calories a day are far from ideal conditions for literary production. With deft humor, this memoir traces her island days and slowly reveals the life and people she has left behind in pursuit of her writing. It seems that there is nowhere she can run--an island or the pages of her notebook--to escape the big questions of love, art, and, ambition.
