SIGNUP TO RECEIVE EMAILS
Book Discussion @ the Richard Sugden Library, Spencer. Monday, April 22, 2019 from 11:00—12:00 we will discuss the book: Out Stealing Horses By Per Petterson. Books available at Library’s Main Desk. Light refreshments.
Sixty-seven-year-old Trond Sander lives secluded in a far corner of Norway. Casting his mind back to 1948, he recalls a horse stealing prank with his best friend that turned tragic and changed his life forever.
The novel’s incidents and lush but precise descriptions of forest and river, rain and snow, sunlight and night skies are on a par with those of Cather, Steinbeck, Berry, and Hemingway, and its emotional force and flavor are equivalent to what those authors can deliver, too. — Olson, Ray (Reviewed 06-01-2007) (Booklist, vol 103, number 19, p38)
