Mai jos, câteva detalii despre carte şi autor, în lb. engleză.

“Writer, photographer, film editor and philosopher GORDON STAINFORTH talk about his new book, ‘Fiva: An Adventure That Went Wrong’, which tells the epic true story of a near-death experience on a mountain in Norway in 1969.

Fiva (pronounced ‘Fever’) is Gordon’s first foray into literature and is receiving rave reviews from readers on Amazon as well as from top-class mountaineers and has just been short-listed for the prestigious 2012 Boardman-Tasker Prize – the Man-Booker of the mountaineering world.

Joe Simpson, best-selling author of ‘Touching the Void’ said: “Wonderful, nostalgic, gripping, classic epic yarn with great humour deserves to win many many awards – read it :)”

Stephen Venables, author of ‘Higher than the Eagle Soars’ said: “[Fiva is] the most intelligent disaster story to appear for years…At last – an exciting, intelligent, humorous disaster story by someone who can write English. The late sixties period detail is lovely. So, too, is the nail-biting denouement. And, actually, it isn’t really a disaster story at all: it’s all about using courage, initiative, comradeship and a large dollop of luck to escape from a nasty situation.”
