Overview

The latest Scandinavian publishing phenomenon is not a Stieg Larsson–like thriller; it’s a book about chopping, stacking, and burning wood that has sold more than 200,000 copies in Norway and Sweden and has been a fixture on the bestseller lists there for more than a year. Norwegian Wood provides useful advice on the rustic hows and whys of taking care of your heating needs, but it’s also a thoughtful attempt to understand man’s age-old predilection for stacking wood and passion for open fires. An intriguing window into the exoticism of Scandinavian culture, the book also features enough inherently interesting facts and anecdotes and inspired prose to make it universally appealing. The U.S. edition is a fully updated version of the Norwegian original, and includes an appendix of U.S.-based resources and contacts.

A beautiful work of nonfiction literature ... full of witty phrases and unexpected personality in a book you might, at first glance, deem dry (no pun intended). Includes piercing insights of not only a culture and a people but mankind in its relation to one of its most basic needs. My favorite page? The last and certainly not because I survived the catalog of stoves! The image there will stay with you for years to come.
