book coverTHE ALGEBRA OF SNOW: A BEDTIME STORY FOR MY MOTHER by Ginger Moran

A mathematics professor alone in the Adirondack Mountains in winter has two dogs and one estranged husband. Structured around the fall and winter holidays, the novel follows the severe winter as the professor retreats to an inner landscape of loss - husband, dog, child, mother - that ultimately opens up her ability to be a part of the world. The author taught at Spring Hill College and Fisk University and currently edits and serves as the associate director of Iris, the University of Virginia Women's Center magazine. The Algebra of Snow was nominated for a Pushcart Editor's Choice Award.
