First Write-Up on Whiteout

David A. James has written up a heartfelt review of and response to Whiteout at Alaska Dispatch News.

He says 'her [Goodfellow's] work is a study of inter-generational trauma, of how the pain that afflicts parents and grandparents can be handed down to children who did not experience it directly. It's deeply moving.'

and  'On this 50th anniversary of those horrible events, perhaps this is the most fitting memorial we could have. A memorial that honors those left behind who have had to carry on in the victims' absence.'

It's an insightful and honest piece, the kind of response I hope readers might have to Whiteout.
