Pym by Mat Johnson.. In the spirit of imaginative renovelization of previously met characters, this one borrows a body from Edgar Allan Poe, but the writing is so good and the situation so quirky, the connection may as well be a footnote for some future grad student's thesis. An African American in Antarctica? Read all about it.
