Advance praise for Brother in Ice

  • ‘A unconventional look at a world that makes [Kopf] feel uncomfortable . . . a text in which the feats of polar explorers give way to a central autobiographical story about the equally harsh and arid trips through family relationships and within oneself.’ Carles Geli, El País
  • ‘Simultaneously serious and light, incidental and yet trascendental.’ V. Pagès Jordà, El Periódico
  • ‘A book, part essay and part autobiography, that is also a chronicle of a generation stalled in a world without horizons or certainties . . . An unusual book and the deserving winner of the Documenta Award.’ Julià Guillamón, La Vanguardia
