Overview

It’s 1975 when beautiful Dido Paris arrives at the radio station in Yellowknife, a frontier town in the Canadian north. She disarms hard-bitten broadcaster Harry Boyd and electrifies the station, setting into motion rivalries both professional and sexual.

As the drama at the station unfolds, a proposed gas pipeline threatens to rip open the land and inspires many people to find their voices for the first time.This is the moment before television conquers the north’s attention, when the fate of the Arctic hangs in the balance.

After the snow melts, members of the radio station take a long canoe trip into the Barrens, a mysterious landscape of lingering ice and infinite light that exposes them to all the dangers of the ever-changing air.

Spare, witty, and dynamically charged, this compelling tale embodies the power of a place and of the human voice to generate love and haunt the memory.

    Late Nights on Air

    I had to read Late nights on air for my book club and I was very bored out of my mind. The story really did not go anway where and the charcters were boring. By the end of the book I really didn't care what happened to the characters. If this is how this writer write I won't be reading anymore of her books.

    Late Nights on Air

    I just finished read Late Nights on Air and to tell you the truth I hated it. The story was long and boring and I had a hard time staying with it. So many times I was wanted to throw this book in the trash. Very Disappointing.

    GREAT, MAGNIFICENT STORYTELLING

    Elizabeth Hay is one great storyteller. She has created a collection of flawed, very human characters with only a few, precise words. Being the northern city of Yellowknife one of them. I cannot praised this marvelous, wondrous novel enough. A must read.
