Professional reviews

"This gorgeous novel, gracefully translated by Anne Born and beautifully performed by Richard Poe, is told from the point of view of Trond Sonder, who in early old age has moved with his dog to an isolated corner of Norway to live in solitude. But his solitude is like a movie screen on which plays the last year of his boyhood, shortly after the war, when he spent the summer with his father in a village near the Swedish border. What Trond learned about his father's wartime activities and what happened that postwar summer changed everything in his life. Poe's warm, attractive voice is equally effective for Trond young and old. He gives one of those performances that disappear, leaving nothing to jar the listener from absorption in the story. B.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
