MIDGE RAYMOND

 

Midge Raymond returns to Elliott Bay tonight to read from her much anticipated debut novel, My Last Continent (Scribner), in which a researcher discovers that her colleague (and lover) is aboard a ship that may have been lost in the icy southern ocean. “ The unpredictability of the splendors and terrors of life at the southern pole creates a backdrop of foreboding entirely appropriate for the story's cinematic resolution in a place where people go when they have run out of places to go or run out of spots to hide. Antarctica, with its bizarre and beckoning realities, plays as large a role in this love story as either of its major characters”-Kirkus. Midge Raymond is also the author of Forgetting English, a short story collection that won a Spokane Book Prize and of a very useful book publicity guide, Book Marketing for Authors.
