Novelist Carsten Jensen

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Carsten Jensen, one of Scandinavia’s most acclaimed storytellers, talks about his novel, We, the Drowned. The story spans four generations, two world wars, and 100 years, from the barren rocks of Newfoundland to the lush plantations of Samoa, from the roughest bars in Tasmania to the frozen coasts of northern Russia. It's a humorous, thrilling tale of fathers and sons, the women they love and leave behind, and the sea.
