In a page-turner powered by wit and plot twist, the biggest surprise may be that Blair Braverman has written one of the smartest--and most humane--satires of our media age as a tale of wilderness survival. 

JEFF SHARLET, bestselling author of THE FAMILY and THE UNDERTOW

WELCOME TO THE GODDAMN ICE CUBE

“As a storyteller and a stylist, Braverman is remarkably skilled, with a keen sense of visceral detail that borders on sublime. Her ability to draw readers into heart-pounding action sequences is what makes the book so courageous and original as a travel narrative and a memoir of self-discovery.”

THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

“. . . a richly insightful work whose bold but delicately delivered honesty has much to teach us. . . . Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube is gorgeous, moving and universally resonant. Most of all, it’s important.”
