The call of the cold

The story of Tété-Michel Kpomassie’s extraordinary journey from Togo to Greenland, which I mentioned in a recent roundup of forthcoming books, is now out in a new edition from Penguin.
The author is currently living in Paris, but since he first arrived in the Arctic, in 1965, he has been back three times. This year, at 81, he is returning again — to live out his remaining years. He told Michael Segalov, who interviewed him for a piece published yesterday in The Observer: “It’s my destiny.”
