Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson

This novel was a Norwegian best seller. The story is told from the perspective of the main character, Trond, who has moved to a backwoods cabin in Eastern Norway to spend the last years of his life. There he reflects on the turbulent events of his youth and begins to understand his past. Petterson's prose is sparse and his landscape is alive.
