520    As in the best of Jules Verne or Albert Sanchez Pinol, The
       Balloonist is a gripping and surreal yarn, chilling and 
       comic by turn, that brilliantly reinvents the Arctic 
       adventure. It is July 1897, at the northernmost reach of 
       the inhabited world. A Swedish scientist, an American 
       journalist, and a young, French-speaking adventurer climb 
       into a wicker gondola suspended beneath a huge, red-and-
       white balloon. The ropes are cut, the balloon rises, and 
       the three begin their voyage: an attempt to become the 
       first people to set foot on the North Pole, and return, 
       borne on the wind. Philip Pullman says in his foreword: 
       "Once I open any of MacDonald Harris's novels I find it 
       almost impossible not to turn and read on, so delightful 
       is the sensation of a sharp intelligence at work. In The 
       Balloonist, we see all of his qualities at their best."
