Staff Reviews


Per Petterson is back after 2007's stunner OUT STEALING HORSES, and his latest is well worth the wait. The story begins with a chance encounter between two long-estranged friends, both radically changed since their boyhoods. Through a series of remembrances narrated by the two men and others close to them, the reader sees the lasting effects of childhood traumas and the inevitable melancholy of life's ever-shifting fortunes. Coolly composed, elegiac, and engrossing. 

— Katelyn
