Bennett is deeply engaged in the unknowability of other people and the scourge of colorism. Lars Mytting’s non-fiction work Norwegian Wood made the Scandinavian art of chopping firewood into an improbable bestseller. His novel The Bell in the Lake (MacLehose £16.99, translated by Deborah Dawkin) is set in a remote Norwegian village in 1880. Schonauer's task is to prepare sketches of the building, figure out the peculiarities of its construction and oversee and organise its dismantling before it is reassembled in Dresden exactly as stood in Butangen. Its magic pure and its mysteries pri­mor­dial, Lars Myt­ting’s novel The Bell in the Lake is a tour de force set in the untamed wilds of Nor­way. The lake has frozen, and for months the ground is too hard to bury the dead. "Change came slowly," Mytting writes. The conflicts and the problems that arise have less to do with social and cultural differences than personal ones that run up against family backgrounds and old traditions. Download.

Astrid is a particularly strong character, so it’s unfortunate that Mytting seems to lose track of her as the book goes on, choosing to focus instead on Gerhard, a romantic and idealistic figure. ‧ She longs for the world that’s represented by the newspapers that Kai shares with her, where the light of gas lamps reaches inward to illuminate minds.
