In this short and gentle portrait of a young boy growing up in a working-class suburb of Oslo in the 1960s, Per Petterson deftly and with great tenderness captures the thoughts and feelings of 6 year old Arvid as he tries to make sense of the sometimes confusing world around him. His often hazy understanding of what is happening comes across clearly in Petterson's usual concise and spare prose and beautifully captures the world through Arvid's eyes. His relationship with his father is particularly touching, and this little window into a child's world is both striking and memorable. Short enough to be read in just one sitting, this is a delightful tale of everyday family life, snapshots of moments in a childhood.
