In this brief introduction to her book, "Permafrost," we get a look into the life of Baltasar's main character. We learn of a love that seemed to have escaped her grasp, of her sister with who she has an odd relationship, and of moles that cover her body (one which is presumably cancerous). She is thoughtful and witty, yet clearly has a set of insecurities that could make an excellent book.
