Fulbright scholarship in Iceland/Greenlanders[edit]

Smiley's studies as a Fulbright Scholar in Iceland gave her the background for her book, Greenlanders; see the NY Times article, "Her Saga of a Giant Island" for more detail. --A. B. 03:33, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

Age of Grief publication date[edit]

Age of Grief was published before 1992 as my first edition of The Greenlanders(1988) lists it as a previously published work by Smiley. The Publishers Weekly review quoted at Amazon is copyright 1987, which I'll change the date to unless someone objects within the next couple of days. SHJohnson 14:10, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
