"Super Tuesday" and Flight of the Goose

Austrian newspaper Die Presse

4 years ago on Super Tuesday, an Austrian newspaper editor trying to educate flabbergasted Europeans about the states of the US and the people who live in them, wrote this about "Flight of the Goose" :
"Geht es entlegener? Alaska! James A. Michener hat es 1988 im gleichnamigen Bestseller verewigt, er führt die Leser von Urzeiten bis zu Eisenhower. Wer näher an die Gegenwart heran will, ohne Sarah Palin begegnen zu müssen, sollte „Flight of the Goose“ (2005) von Lesley Thomas in Betracht ziehen. Sie schreibt über Probleme am Polarkreis in den Siebzigerjahren, die heute noch aktuell sind." (~Die Presse)
I felt honored to have to my little nearly unknown novel in the same league as the novels of Mark Twain, Louise Erdrich, Toni Morrison, Edgar Allan Poe, and Herman Melville.
When I wrote to the editor to thank him, he was kind to reply, "the attention is well deserved".
