The final collection of stories by award-winning writer Marjorie Kowalski Cole, "The City Beneath the Snow" is a portrait of contemporary Alaskans, their interactions, and their foibles. These stories reveal the moral decisions that lurk at unexpected corners in daily life as the characters confront a world at once magical and ordinary, joy-filled and tragic. Together, they give the reader an intimate portrait of a people and place more often portrayed through wilderness specials and reality adventure shows."Cole's characters live, work, and struggle in interior Alaska, and she depicts life here with a keen eye and with compassion. We see the daughter of a Fairbanks junkyard owner, struggling with her isolation. We meet a bartender at Circle Hot Springs who's also a certified nurse's assistant at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital. A newcomer to Fairbanks fall in love with the aurora. We watch a marriage strained nearly to breaking after a young daughter drowns in the slough. We see an alcohol abuse counselor and a pilot who flies her around in the bush trying to find their way after a brief sexual encounter. These are the inner lives, revealed with care and with skill, the true material of good literature."--Peggy Shumaker, Writer Laureate of Alaska
