Hanna RubinPaul's graceful, objective tone may be the book's greatest strength. The author of Fighting Fire, an acclaimed memoir of her stint as a San Francisco firefighter, she is at her best describing the sheer physical sensation of being on the island. Sunsets, heat and dust are rendered in tactile detail. The island becomes a force in its own right.
