by Ola Larsmo, Sweden,
translated by Tiina Nunnally.
Gustaf and Anna Klar and their three children leave Sweden for New York in 1897 longing for a new life. Their dream of starting over is nearly crushed at the outset, and they make one more desperate move, this time to the Midwest and a place called Swede Hollow. The Klar family and their neighbors persevere in this neglected corner of the city—and consider it home. There are hardships, indignities, accidents, and harrowing encounters, but also acts of loyalty and kindness and moments of joy. Extensively researched and beautifully written, this award-winning novel vividly portrays a family and a community determined to survive.
