About this title

Synopsis:

12-year-old Arvid and his family are on holiday, staying with his grandparents in Denmark. Arvid is confused by the underlying tension between his mother and grandmother, and is grappling with his own sense of self: he's on the cusp of becoming a teenager, feeling awkward in his own skin, and is unsure of his emotions.

As Arvid cycles around town, down to the beach and its lighthouse, his new-found freedom fuels his desire to experience life: the feeling of exhilaration as he strips off his red swimming trunks and taunts a bull before running to safety, or as he jumps into the water while fishing with a friend and batters a line-caught fish to death – violence he can’t quite comprehend in its aftermath.

Echoland is an extraordinarily natural, subtle and truthful snapshot of growing up, light as air but with an emotional depth that lingers long after its final pages.

About the Author:

Per Petterson was born in Oslo in 1952 and worked for several years as an unskilled labourer and a bookseller. He made his literary breakthrough in 2003 with the prizewinning novel Out Stealing Horses, which has been published in forty-nine languages and won the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award and the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize.
