A quiet but compelling novel which has a widower in his seventies living in Norway as its nucleus. His chance meeting with his neighbour sends him down the memory lane: the summer of 1948, he had spent with his father whom he dearly loved. The father had left the family soon after. The boy’s adventure of taking out some horses for nearby farms results into a haunting experience.
Per Petterson is doubtlessly Norway’s most celebrated and widely translated novelist, enriching the world literature.
