    Echoland published last year is Per Petterson’s eighth novel Like the bulk of Petterson’s work you can read all my reviews here the story is framed around a character named Arvid who has a Norwegian father and a Danish mother and is said to be loosely based on the author himselfArvid has appeared in various incarnations in previous novels — from a six year old boy to a 43 year old man — but in this one he is on t

    I like Petterson's work a lot and this his first novel has now been translated It's a slight work in comparison to his later stuff but it introduces many of the themes and landscapes that feature in that work It's promising and worth reading but not the best introduction to his work

Twelve year old Arvid and his family are on holiday staying with his grandparents in Denmark Confused by the underlying tension between his mother and grandmother Arvid is grappli.

Ng with his own sense of self He’s on the cusp of becoming a teenager feeling awkward in his own skinAs Arvid cycles around town down to the beach with its view of the lighthous. It has been a while since I have read Per Pettersen I have certainly missed him and have read all the previous translations My only problem with several of his books are that they are too short and Echoland is indeed that but having said that it is up there with his very best I was surprised to read it was written than 30 years ago and yet bears those similar trademarks and pillars of his recent work Out Stealing Horses To Siberia In The WakeIt is the story of a 12 year old boy s summer holiday on the Danish coast He is a Norwegian of Italian descent and arrives with his family by yacht It is easy to identify with as many of us will have had similar holidays when we were 12 and in that respect it is a coming of age story a memorable and significant two weeks in a young boy s lifeThis is what Pettersen does so well During the two weeks much of Arvid s time is spent cycling around the coast and with a slightly older friend that he meets Mogen One time when they are at the almost deserted beach they see a young couple cavorting in what they think is privacy this is a sexual awakening for young Arvid He smokes for the first time Death plays a role also his uncle his recently died and the death of his brother after living for just a few weeks plays heavily on his mind His new friend is athletic and confident Arvid is less so with a shyness and perhaps degree of almost autism As with Out Stealing Horses and his other work there are stand out and memorable scenes for the reader as they are for the young person that have a powerful effect meeting the bull in the field fishing with Mogen and meeting the girl on the beach for exampleArvid reads as much as he can during his vacation Pelle The Conueror features highly it also is a beautiful story and another wonderful insight into Scandinavian history either of the two movies I recommend as well as the book This novella is powerful stuff and shows how much an author can cram into 100 or so pages though I think twice that would have made it even so
