This book's a tough one to categorize - "travel" seems the most comprehensive for me as it's three parts are set in New Zealand, the U. K. (away from Diski's home itself) and Sweden; however, there's plenty of memoir and philosophy-of-life musing, too. The further I got into the Arctic section, the faster I skimmed towards the book's conclusion - then again, Diski admits upfront that she had second thoughts about the trip after it was too late to cancel; the (fixed) pre-arranged itenerary didn't turn out to be what she had in mind, so she did the best she could.
