On Their Way

On Their Way

by Juaaka Lyberth




Paul Erik returns to Nuuk after spending the summer in his hometown of Uummannaq, Greenland. In Nuuk he attends high school where people from all over the country are housed in dormitories. But the school systems are Danish – and not adapted to the life and circumstances in Greenland, and the young grow increasingly frustrated. The story takes place in 1969, and we gain an insight into a significant period of Greenlandic history, as well as the dominating worldly cultural influences of the times. First English translation.
