Out Stealing Horses

Per Petterson, 2007

At age sixty-seven, Trond has settled into a rustic cabin in an isolated part of eastern Norway to live the rest of his life with a quiet deliberation. His solitude is interrupted by unresolved tensions from his boyhood: his father’s role in the resistance in 1944 and later abandonment of the family, and the events of the day in 1948 when he and his friend were out stealing horses. This title was recommended by many reviewers for the beautiful narration and was included in the New York Times 10 best books of 2007.
