"You'll want to scratch" These spoken words open to us the strange and beguiling world of young corporal Rudy Spruance, forced to join the military due to a mysterious past, and sent for some unexplainable reason to a top-secret military hospital in Greenland. There he meets a wide cast of unusual and colorful characters, outcasts and rejects all, begins to fall for the commanding officer's leggy and strong-willed girlfriend, and slowly uncovers the awful secret behind the portion of the base dubbed "The Wing."
It is a world where glaciers crouch on the horizon, icebergs float along the bay, and polar bears must be chased away from the local dump. It is also a place where conflicting forces intersect, where history, so long held at bay, begins to encroach, and a place that in several month's time will be submerged in an endless night, affectionately termed "The Stark Raving Dark." In the grand tradition of Joseph Heller and Ken Kesey, No One Thinks of Greenland is the hair-raising and hilarious story of one man's desperate attempts to find his place in a mad, mad world.
