Christiane Ritter's 1934 account of a year spent on the arctic island of Spitsbergen, A Woman in the Polar Night, is this week's Book of the Week. Initially horrified by the extreme conditions, Ritter found herself falling in love with the bleak landscape, which allowed her the mental space to find peace, resourcefulness and creativity.
