Child Wonder

Set in the working-class outskirts of Oslo, circa 1961, Norwegian writer Roy Jacobsen’s subtle, captivating coming-of-age novel tells the story of a young boy, Finn, whose life changes dramatically when a previously unknown half-sister comes to live with him and his mother in their cramped apartment. Soon they’re joined by a lodger who further upends Finn’s world. A poignant, painstaking exploration of the mysteries of the heart.
