"If Albert Camus had lived in an age when people in remote Norwegian fishing villages had e-mail, he might have written a novel like this."--"The New Yorker"
"Unformed Landscape" begins in a small village on a fjord in the Finnmark, on the northeastern coast of Norway, where the borders between Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia lie covered in snow and darkness, where the real borders are between day and night, summer and winter, and between people. Here, Kathrine, a sensitive young woman, finds few outlets for her desires. After she makes a discovery about her husband that deeply wounds her, Kathrine cuts loose from her moorings--and her confusion--and sets off in search of herself.
Using simple words strung together in a melodic alphabet, Peter Stamm introduces us, through a series of intimate sketches, to the heart of an unforgettable woman. Her story speaks eloquently about solitude, the fragility of love, lost illusions, and self-discovery.
