David Gullen Reviews for Arc Magazine

David Gullen reviewed Shackleton’s Man Goes South by Tony White for Arc Magazine. The book is the first novel ever published by London’s Science Museum, and David says it’s a “a triumph of controlled anger”.

Part fiction, part historical narrative, part science journalism, Shackleton’s Man Goes South depicts an adventure as magnificent and dreadful as Scott’s or Shackleton’s. Commissioned by the Science Museum as part of a five-year programme of contemporary art on the subject of climate, this is a book about going forwards by going back. Characters in the future echo those from the past; as clues from fossils and ice cores tell us about a warmer past, and hint at the future.
