Ready … set … go! It’s time to race down to the old neighborhood bookstore because local favorite and former Northfield resident Siri Hustvedt (St. Olaf College, class of 1977) has a new book out. Well, actually, it comes out tomorrow, April 1 — no fooling.
“Sorrows” is a story about the immigrant experience and the ghosts that haunt families from one generation to another. When Erik Davidsen and his sister, Inga, find a disturbing note from an unknown woman among their dead father’s papers, they believe he may be implicated in a mysterious death. “The Sorrows of an American” tells the story of the Davidsen family as brother and sister uncover its secrets and unbandage its wounds in the year following their father’s funeral.
Looks tasty to me!
