Inhalt:

Amarâq, Eastern Greenland, the end of the world. A lonely, cold, hard place, yet one that's filled with boundless joy and bewitching natural magic, Amarâq plays host to an annual tragedy: a spate of suicides races through the town each spring, a plague that leaves no family untouched. "Anatomy of a Night" details the events of one of these black nights, following the lives of eleven of Amarâq's inhabitants - their loves and losses, their escapes from Amarâq and their inevitable returns, each victory and every defeat magnified by the unforgiving and unforgettably desolate landscape - and paints a portrait of a mysterious phenomenon that strikes a nearly-forgotten people, the Inuit of Greenland. Anatomy of a Night is a hauntingly beautiful and moving wonder from "one of the great voices of her generation." (Tiroler Tageszeitung)
