It's Fine By Me

by Per Petterson, translated by Don Bartlett - £8.99  Vintage (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780099548386 | ISBN 10: 0099548380

The brilliant and moving story of a young man's life from the author of the prizewinning Out Stealing Horses.
 
Audun is the only one of his family who remains with his mother in working-class Oslo. He delivers newspapers when he is not in school and talks for hours about Jack London and Ernest Hemingway with his best friend – but there are some things Audun won’t talk about. Stories about his family, the weeks he spent living in a couple of cardboard boxes, and the day of his little brother's birth, when his drunken father fired three shots into the ceiling.
 
A beautiful and disquieting coming-of-age story from the winner of the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize and the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award.
