WRECKER -- Updates from Summer Wood

Summer Wood's new novel, WRECKER, due out in winter 2011, will be published by Bloomsbury here in the U.S. and in the U.K. Excellent news, Summer!

Read Mark Sundeen's North by Northwestern: A Seafaring Family on Deadly Alaskan Waters

Mark Sundeen's new book with the Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch star, Sig Hansen, promises to be a gripping story about enduring and thriving in the harshest conditions. Sundeen is returning to this year's Taos Summer Writers' Conference to teach two workshops: "The New Nonfiction: What Everyone is Reading and No One is Teaching" (weeklong) and "Mapping Memory: Finding Your Story" (weekend). As you might imagine, only a handful of spaces remain.

North by Northwestern: A Seafaring Family on Deadly Alaskan Waters

Congratulations, Mark!

"To be a successful fisherman, you need to be a mechanic, navigator, welder, painter, carpenter, and sometimes, a firefighter. To be a successful fisherman year after year, you need to be a survivor.

This is the story of a family of survivors; part memoir and part adventure tale, North By Northwestern brings readers on deck, into the dockside bars and into the history of a family with a common destiny. Built around a gripping tale of a deadly shipwreck like The Perfect Storm, North By Northwestern is the multi-generational tale of the Hansen family, a clan of tough Norwegian-American fishermen who, through the popularity of The Deadliest Catch, have become modern folk-heroes."
