Review of Whiteout at The Rumpus

"Goodfellow’s skill . . . amplifies the book’s emotional power and creates a haunting look at a personal tragedy that resonates with larger philosophical questions about death, grief and the dangers of the earth’s extremes," say reviewer Kim Jacobs-Beck in her new review of Whiteout at The Rumpus today. 

This is a very careful, thorough, and thoughtful review both of the poetic techniques used in my book as well as the content, in addition to her consideration of the meshing of the two. I'm grateful to Jacobs-Beck for her insight and care, and to editor Molly Spencer for her assistance.
