A Book We Love: Out Stealing Horses

Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson

Trond Sander, a widower closing in on 70, moves to a primitive cabin in the Norway woods. He seeks a life of quiet in this new place, but the memories from a summer back in 1948 come rushing in after he meets his new neighbor. That was the last summer he spent with his father, in a different quiet cabin. The events of one day in particular come to mind, when an innocent adventure goes awry. The author Petterson’s beautiful prose threads its way forward and back in time, with the adult Trond Sander seeking a new perspective on that day and all the days that followed.
