At the End of the World is the heartbreaking account of a series of obscure murders in the remote Belcher Islands and the ludicrous trial that followed. It is also an elegiac and unsentimental lamentation for a now-dying way of life on the northern perimeter of our planet where the Inuit people have always resided.
In addition, it is a prophetic admonition of the dehumanization, and imminent destruction of what's left of our own culture's humanity, not to mention the natural world. At the End of the World is a brilliant and original book by one of the boldest and most visionary writers of our era, or any other.
